St. Michael was the location of Berwind-White Coal Company's Maryland No. 1 mine. (Maryland No. 2 was a sister mine a few miles away in Wilmore.) In 1955 Maryland No. 1 produced 519,168 tons of coal from the "B" seam, and daily capacity was 2000 tons. 1958 tonnage was only 41,720 tons, and Maryland No. 1 mine closed that year.
