About South Prairie

The discovery of coal in 1875, in South Prairie, brought railroads to the area. The tracks moved people and goods back and forth in the area until there was a decline in logging and coal mining, leaving many railroad beds to become abandoned. The tracks cut through the existing pleasurable amenities in the area. Among the natural beauty are treed meadows and the South Prairie Creek. For the residents and visitors, it’s a place to get away from the noise of the world and hectic big city life.
