Eckley Miners Village
Eckley Miners Village from October, 1998. The coal breaker which looms in the background was built for the 1968 Richard Harris film "The Molly Maguires." The house in the foreground has wood siding covering up Brick-Tex siding, which was done to back date the structures that were seen in the film. After the film, the town became a state museum.
