load coal!!!!!!!!!!!!
As coal died communities died. Progress stops for no one.
Sad, union workers upset about their jobs. Set mine on fire, making them out of a job. Now no job to be upset about.
Just because its old doesn't necessarily make it historic. Sure this place looks cool. But it has no historical significance whatsoever. A town run down and forgotten about by poor white trash is not a big deal.
Erie...if not creepy.
With Trump as president, miners are working their asses off...LOL!!!
Yea yea old mines.. if you ask around there was more than the mine. If you are over 60 a good chance you worked many years around shawnee and Straitsville. Boils, brick yard, shawnee coal, Seven chimneys and peabody's. Shame its nothing like that now.
Did you do the piano version of Daydreaming? <3 Radiohead!
also was a mine fire in Centralia PA
I used to go there during my employment at Children's Services. Yes, this area is very unique.
seal it then flood the fire will go out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just see a great place to metal Detect.
This place is one corpse away from being a ghost town!
What’s crazy is that people inhabit a lot of shawnee but walking through there it seems as if no one has been there for years. There’s a little historic theatre on that strip of buildings on Main Street a group of people has been trying to raise the money to restore for over 20 years it just seems any work these people try to do it falls through because of the terrible economy in the area since the coal fires. Being there is always unreal and baffles me. I’m from Cleveland but I visit family there often
I really like this channel! It reminds me of BSF a lot.
its a neat old town i have been there many times
Great video. Very well put together.
Sometimes, I wish I had all the money so I can restore some of these places so they can become "Living History" destinations for tourists and schools...
Watch your girl the guy in the flannel is coming 😂. Excellent job with the history stranger.
