|The coal company patch town of Dunlap or
Garwood was built ca.1909 by the Dunlaps Connellsville Coke Company for the
miners at their Garwood Mine & Coke Works. It is not certain when the
Garwood Mine closed. The coal company patch town of Dunlap ceased to
exist sometime in the 1940's.
The few remaining traces of the town of Dunlap and the Garwood Mine complex ca.2005 will be buried forever under the new Mon-Fayette Expressway.
