Hazelton/Weatherly, Pennsylvania

Went to Eckley Miners Village yesterday. My grandfather was a miner at the Eckley Mine and his picture is on the wall in the museum. Sean Connery starred in The Mollie Maguires which was filmed there in 1970. The museum was filled with artifacts and information and a movie that really showed how it was back then. A lot of the buildings are still standing including the homes, company store (where the term ‘owe your soul to the company store’ came from), churches, etc. It was rich in history. Hope you enjoy the pictures. Eckley Miners Village
