Housing at Prospect Site ???


May 13, 2006

OP-ED : This is just sheer speculation, but I wonder how long it will be before they start building houses at the former Prospect Colliery Site in Plains, PA ???

I have heard reports of deep shafts there and the Prospect as having a reputation as being a gassy mine, and having dangerous roof falls. There were two old company houses, nearer to the D&H railroad tracks, but they were demolished like in the late 80s. There was too much subsidences and rumor had it the houses shook from time to time due to the shifting ground under them.

Nevertheless, there is an awesome view from up there. There is still a lot of culm that has to be removed. If they clean it up and stablize the ground, I bet in 5-10 years there will be luxury houses there.
