“Company houses” make up the Eckley Miners’ Village in Weatherly. Coal companies built villages like Eckley, which provided housing, shops, schools, and churches for miners, while giving the company control over its workers.
Visit Eckley Miners’ Village and travel back in time to see what it was like to live around and work in the mines when the demand for Anthracite coal was booming. Reenactors within the village help bring the experience to life.
