Alicia # 2 Tipple - Alicia, PA

And 2013

Today was another rare day where Evan, Danielle, and myself actually had a chance to go on mission together. Time was a factor so we decided to stay local. A recent post by Mike Billetz on our Facebook page included some cool shots of the old coal load out on the Mon river near the Grays Landing Lock. So, we disregarded the crappy weather and headed on down to get some shots. I'll admit, we don't know very much about this facility other than it is very old and seems to have been abandoned some time. That's okay, though.We like when the readers comment with information and details! Actually we prefer it to looking up boring facts. We like hearing from folks whose families may have worked there. Enjoy the photos and video clips and please comment with any details you may have on the facility. Old photos are welcome, too! Our goal in 2013 is to make this blog more interactive with input from the readers, so hit us up!!

  3. I see you made to the Alicia buildings. I didn't see the other two small buildings in your blog. Are they gone or you didn't travel far enough to see them.

  4. Shame it's this rundown, but then again, pretty interesting to see an old tipple that is still standing!

  5. I noticed you left out the collapsed coal mine at the top of the hill above the main building. I got a good pic of the inside of it on my phone when I hiked to this location.
