Loomis Park

These were company housing for miners for the Loomis Colliery.  Probably the better company housing.

These sturdy brick houses look to be in good shape for how old they are.  It is a cute little patch town that is now a quiet neighborhood. 

The DL&W Hanover and Newport Twp. Branch ran a short distance away from here.

A little piece of our coal mining past.
