St. Nicholas Coal Breaker

November 2010.

Once run by the Reading Anthracite Company, this plant broke coal down into commercially-desirable sizes and removed imperfections from the coal. This breaker, outside Mahanoy City, PA, opened in 1932 and ceased operation in 1963. The breaker and power plant are remarkably well-preserved, inside and out.
