Hello all...
...my first post here so I felt I should contribute with an interesting location and story.

I recently had a chance to revisit an interesting place. The Dupont Powder Mill, near Moosic, Pa. I hooked up with a long time friend who grew up very near this location. I'm very interested in hearing others stories and sharing info. I will continue to add pics and info.

Hope you enjoy and join the conversation.

File comment: There are many rail spurs throughout the property, it would be great to have an overview to see how operations worked.
