Forgotten Scranton
"Industrial Archaeology in Northeast Pennsylvania"
"Forgotten Scranton" is a new adventure into Industrial Archaeology.  In the future we'll take a look at industrial remnants, abandoned mining facilities and defunct railroad lines.  Some of these holdovers from the past sometimes remain in plain sight but seldom noticed while others may demand more intrepid investigation.  This page will grow as we visit different sites and record images.  Come join us for a look at some fascinating relics from another time.
