Unusual mine in that the doctor's office and the original mine elevator is still intact. Located just west of Jim Thorpe, PA, on Route 209. It is the most original and preserved Anthracite mine I've seen. Well worth the trip from local area and to get away from the routine tourist traps of the Poconos.
