Anybody travel up this little dirt road? You come up to a Y in the road. To the left is a construction company. To the right and up abit is an older building, it was blocked off and not wanting to get into trouble of being on private property, I didn't go up.

Does anybody know if that building was used for mining at all?

Just curious......

I remember seeing that from Penn State Scranton when I was a student there about 10 years ago. Are all the buildings owned by valvano const now or are they owned by diff people. also what is the best way to get there from 81?
