Pennsylvania was a huge coal mining state. Luzerne county (Where Ashley, Pa is located) has several small coal mining towns. Ashley was unique for it's main Breaker, Huber Coal Breaker - the largest anthracite coal processing building of its kind. Construction on the Breaker was complete in 1939 and operations finally ended 1976. If anyone wishes to see this beast for themselves, it can be seen from Route 81 heading to Wilkes Barre. Once your on the main street in Ashley, its a little hard to miss.
