DESCRIPTION:
Of the three mines in Nanty-glo proper, only one the Heisley No. 3 Mine, had an extant building ca.1990.  The building was erected prior to 1948, probably by the Heisley Coal Company.  The building is a tall one-story brick building containing a hip roof.  Although little is known about this building, it was probably constructed by the Heisley Coal Company in the ca.1910s or 1920s, and stood near the mine shaft of the Heisley No. 3 Mine.   The building is currently, ca.1990, vacant as the Bethlehem Mines ceased operations at the Bethlehem No. 31 Mine (Heisley No. 3 Mine) in the early 1980s.
