Archbald: Gravity Slope Colliery

A few views of the remains of the Gravity Slope Colliery in Archbald. The colliery which opened in 1913, at one time employed 1,700 men, and has been closed since Tuesday, October 4, 1955. A few years ago there was talk of turning the site into a museum, but the project doesn't seem to have progressed very much. It looks like the Oil House has seen the bulk of the work so far.
