Mine accident

In June 1903, at 10:30 a.m., an underground explosion occurred in the Hanna No.1 Colliery. The explosion was thought to have originated at the end of the stope, one and a half miles underground, blocking escape for the majority of workers. Of the 215 men on site, only 46 survived — the majority of victims being Finnish immigrants and black workers. The town's original grave site was far too small to handle such a large body count, and the town was forced to establish the Hanna Cemetery to bury the bodies, three miles (5 km) outside of the town.
