Somerset County Pennsylvania - Coal Mine Index
INDEX  B
[This listing of coal mines and coal companies has been researched and complied from various sources by Raymond A. Washlaski, Historian: newspaper articles, Pennsylvania Bureau of Mines Reports, county histories, township histories, Pennsylvania Geological Survey reports, topographical maps, personnal accounts of coal miners, etc., etc.]
Very few coal company employee records exist today.  Most Coal Company employee records have been lost or destroyed after the mines were closed. If you have mine records or know of the location of coal company employee records please let us know.

Your help is needed to preserve our coal mining heritage.
Please donate any mine records, mine maps or copies of them, pictures of the mines, pictures of miners, stories about the miners, mine memorabilia, books on mining, or tax deductable monetary donations to:

[Organized by brothers Charles and Edward Berwind and Judge Allison White, beginning with a mine in Clearfield County before opening additional mines in Cambria (the first was in Dunlo, followed by several in the Paint Creek Valley south of Johnstown), Somerset and Westmoreland Counties. The company town of Windber was established around 1898 just over the Cambria County line in Somerset County. The company operated several mines into the 1950s, and in 1962 was reorganized into the Berwind Company, a Philadelphia-based firm that manages the real estate holdings of the company. No longer engaged in mining, the firm still retains extensive mineral and surface rights in Cambria and Somerset Counties.]
