Edenborn was a "model" patch town owned by H.C. Frick Coke Co., replete with large houses of varying shapes and sidewalks, as pictured here. (Feb. 2004 image by author)


These duplexes, more common to Western PA company towns, may have been built at a later date, when demand for coal and coke peaked and additional workers were needed. (Feb. 2004 image by author)


The superintendent's house still sits on a hill in Edenborn, overlooking the rest of the community. (Feb. 2004 image by author)


Except for a piece of ruins here and there, all of the Edenborn coal and coke works have been destroyed. This refuse pile remains, with the patch in the background. There is also a reprocessing operation of the refuse pile at Edenborn. (Feb. 2004 image by author)
