A true “Gem” in Coaldale as many may walk by this building and mistake it simply for a beautiful church. Well, it is. The old Mennonite Brethren Congregation church was turned into a museum that showcases the rich history of Coaldale with artifacts and stories from locals.
The Gem of the West received its name from Coaldale’s early days and the museum is a mosaic of those times. The locals share their own artifacts and stories so you know the information you are receiving is authentic to its region.
