Temporary Exhibit

Loading Coal in Seward. Museum Curator Elana Yanusz has put together a temporary exhibit in the Seward Museum that gives details about the Suneel coal facility that operated for three decades next door to the Alaska Railroad dock in Seward. Starting in 1984, coal traveled by railcar from Usibelli coal mine in Healy before it was loaded in Seward via conveyor belt to outbound transport ships headed to foreign ports.
