Not just any coal was mined in colonial Midlothian, but quality resources that would supply coal to the cannon factory on the James River, upstream from Richmond, at Westham. Thomas Jefferson attested to the excellent quality of coal in the area, which he would later order for use at the White House during his presidency. Details of that mining history have been preserved and presented at the Chesterfield Museum in an exhibition of mining history.
