Coy, PA features typical Western Pennsylvania coal patch housing. The Coy coal mine and coal town were built in 1913 by the Brush Creek Coal Co. (May 2003 image by author)


This style of two-family, company-built patch housing that is still standing at Coy is known as the Pennsylvania Miner's house. The green house on the left appears to still have the same roof on it in 2003 that the coal company installed on it at least 50 years ago. (May 2003 image by author)
