Bob Murray, owner of the new Century mine, has offered to avoid any damage which might be caused by subsidence due to longwall mining under the ravines and the concrete underground houses at Raven Rocks. In recognition of this decision, Raven Rocks, Inc., presented Murray with four photographs by John Morgan along with an inscription expressing our appreciation. These photographs record the presentation of the photos and the reading of the inscription at the mine office, near the north border of Raven Rocks.
