Marvine Colliery

The Marvine Colliery of the Hudson Coal Company, once one of the world's most modern facilities. Today not much is left of the once prosperous colliery, but some remnants remain.

I remember driving by this area with my family when I was young in the early 60's and the stench from the culm dump was terrible. I never knew the Marvine Colliery was right there.

I'd love to find a map of all the coal mines in Lackawanna County. My grandfather and great-grandfathers lived in Jessup and Peckville andworked in the mines.
