Work at Brooks Model Mine

 

July 16, 2006


It looks like there is some work being done at the old Brooks Model Mine in Nay Aug Park, Scranton. The ugly wood covering the opening is gone. Some steel gates replaced them. Upon looking at the pictures, there are what appears to be electrical cables going into the mine. A black cloth covers what is beyond from view. Are they going to re-open it ???

The author was in the Brooks Mine when he was younger. It was not that long. It was not a real mine, just a tourist attraction dug into the hill to resemble a mine. There were tools on display, narrow gauge rail and a mine car.

Supposedly in the early 70s there was a collapse and the model mine was closed. The park went down hill in the 80s and the mine was closed for decades.
