Tilly Foster Mine
First mined in 1853 by Harvey Iron and Steel Company, the Tilly Foster Mine boomed under the auspices of the Lackawanna Iron and Coal Company of Scranton, PA, which acquired the mine in 1879. In 1890 the owners converted the mine to an open pit. At one time, it was the largest man-made hole in the world. For further information, go to the Southeast Museum website
