Fascinating Blackball Labor Museum and charming pub
Mar 2019 • Friends
Blackball is 29-30 minutes out of Greymouth.
This museum is dedicated to the 1908 strike for the 30 minute lunch hour.
(The judge took 90 minutes for lunch and came back to say, 15 minutes is enoough for a coal miner. It continues with the history of labout in New Zealand. Two leaders became cabinet ministers -30 years later We spent 30 minutes; free. Next door is the `Formerly Blackball Hilton'. Another historical rreasure with good food. Opens at noon. Also a greet salami shop.

Blackball a must visit historical wee village
Nov 2018 • Couples
What a wonderful town. In 1893 coal was produced near the present site of Blackball . In the same year the township of Blackball (named after the company) was laid out, and sections were auctioned. After a successful strike in 1908, Blackball miners gained a reputation for being highly unionised and active socialists. A number of the leading strikers subsequently became leaders in the labour movement. The mine workings were nationalised in 1941, becoming the Blackball State Mine. Because of its high sulfur content, the coal was hard to sell, and the mine finally closed in 1964,
So we learn the the Labour party began here in Blackball. Well worth a visit , and it's all free and self directed.
