HORNING, PA (MINE NO. 4)


Duplex homes that once housed the miners of the Pittsburgh Terminal Railroad and Coal Company's No. 4 mine.


Another part of the Horning patch contains these large homes - possbily a bosses row. Behind them is a long row of one story "shotgun" company houses.


Yet another kind of coal company housing at Horning are these small "shotgun" houses.

Some of the buildings still existing from the Horning mine, like this one, are being used by Bloom Engineering.


Ruins of the Horning mine. The "slate dump" is also extant, with a huge flagpole flying an American flag on it. The Horning mine closed in 1939.
