Historical Construction Equipment Association
Harrison Coal and Reclamation Historical Park
The Ohio Valley Chapter of the Historical Construction Equipment Association includes the areas of eastern Ohio, northern West Virginia, and Southwestern Pennsylvania.
To meet the goals of the Chapter we need to increase our membership and interest.
The chapter has many opportunities for those interested in construction, surface mining equipment or both.
The Harrison Coal and Reclamation Park was founded to preserve the history of surface mining and reclamation equipment.
The association currently has a equipment storage and display area, located 2 miles south of Cadiz, Ohio on State Route 9 in the Harrison County Industrial Park.
The area is open to the public on a self guided tour 7 days a week dawn to dusk.
Admission is free, however, donations are appreciated.
THE TOUR IS TAKEN AT YOUR OWN RISK.
About 25 of the donated pieces of equipment are on site, including
The Harrison Coal & Reclamation Park meets the 2nd Thursday of every month at 6:30pm.
Meetings are held during the warm months at the Harrison Coal & Reclamation Park, and at the home of Roger Davis on Grant Street in Cadiz during the cold months.

The Spade had moved a couple hundred feet further away from the road,
but it was still quite a show.
Not as many photos this time, but we did get a few good shots,
which will be posted soon.
We initially heard that the boom would be lowered to do this,
but the plan now is to use the hoist cables to take slack,
and to use two very large lift cranes to change the boom cables.
It should be quite a show!
