Never heard a name although I should know it. It's just at the top of the houses above the old mill. Great vantage point for fireworks I'm told.

What did they make there Mike?

That is where no one from Idaho wants to live. Sadly our East Coast cities have many rusting factories that will never reopen.

The bits of color are from Jim Thorpe, PA compliments of the Mollie MacGuires.

That was the Bethlehem Steel plant in Bethlehem. Another bigger plant was 70 miles away in Steelton. I watched both closing.Entire cities of steelworkers without any steel to make.

Kind of an ominous setting for a cemetery. YUP! America used to make things out of steel for money, now America makes its money through fee's and late charges. Total financial sector baby!

Which reminds me that I need to dump Chase. They killed free checking and added fees intended to be income for them if I make the slightest error.
