VICTORY, PA (AKA MUSTARD, PA AKA DOUGLAS HOLLOW)


Victory, PA, an obscure and mysterious patch town in Elizabeth Township, was home to the Warden Mine. Here is the mostly covered mine entry. (Nov. 2004 image by author)

Some of the company built houses in Victory. There is another style of company housing a little up the creek. This is obviously a 1920s-era patch with "model" patch housing, contrasting with the duplex patch housing built in Western PA between 1880-1910. (Nov. 2004 image by author)

Most of the Western Pennsylvania patches have an "Honor Roll" for their war heros, and Victory is no different. (Nov. 2004 image by author)
