The Last Breaker

Huber Breaker, Ashley, PA

The Huber Breaker, in Ashley, Pennsylvania, is the last anthracite coal breaker still standing in Wyoming Valley. ┬áThere’s a movement afoot to save it, and I hope it can be done, but it will be a monumental job. One’s first impression of the site and the buildings is one of ugly decay, but with a little imagination, there’s a certain beauty to be found.

It was part of the Glen Alden Coal Company, famous for its “Clean Burning Blue Coal.”
