Coal Memorial SitePrint Page Print this page

Monument marks the site of coal discovery.

In 1883, Arthur Perren laid claim to finding coal on the edge of the Collie River, about where the town of Allanson now is. The area was primarily a milling ground, but Perren leased significant areas on which to run stock. The coal deposit was originally believed to have been found by a shepherd tending Perren`s stock.
