Poland Mines, PA. A return to the former mine site and the Point Marion coke ovens.

Last week, Chip and I returned to the former Poland Mines air shaft site and filmed some video.  Buried in the woods behind Poland Mines, we found a derelict fan house high above the Dunkard Creek.  We then shot down the road to Point Marion, PA and looked at some coke ovens for a future post.  Enjoy.
