Bankhead Coal Mine


Bankhead Mine was located near the town of Bankhead, in Walker County, AL, about 4 miles south of the county seat, Jasper, AL.  The mine was served by the Southern RR, now the Norfolk Southern.  Based on my current understanding the mine has been closed for some years.


This is a portion of the 1937 Walker County Highway map showing the location of Bankhead, and the mines between Bankhead and Calumet.
