The Mission of LCBD is to keep alive the past, stories, and traditions of the Little Cities of Black Diamonds Region and through our history, culture and environment help enrich the future quality of life in the region.

The Little Cities of Black Diamonds Council is an initiative launched and managed by Sunday Creek Associates, a non-profit organization formed in 1990, to promote community development in southern Perry County. One of the first steps taken by the organization was to understand the history of the coal mining communities of southern Perry County under the beliefs that:

  • It’s hard to know where you want to go, unless you first know where you’ve been.
  • The first step in healing wounds is best to understand how they were made.
  • Understanding your assets and building upon them, is a positive way to overcome deficits that may limit your confidence and reputation.
