Some neat old pictures of JiM Thorpe and Summit Hill area and the Lehigh Cola & Navigation Co and the gravity railroad used to move coal.

I hiked up the Pisgah Plane a few times. Straight uphill. Great views at top of Mt Pisgah. We could tour this area and hike the trail to the top for the next Coal Fest. Not far from #9.
