B-W Trivia: What Was This Mining Neighborhood Called?
We will reveal the answer on Monday.
The Baldwin-Whitehall Patch has partnered with the Baldwin Historical Society to bring you a weekly trivia question that delves into our area's colorful past.
Pat Lombardi and Patty Woehler, co-presidents of the society, generously write the questions and provide the pictures.
Here is this week's question:
The picture on the left is of a mine tipple in the early 1900s. The tipple was used for the Horning Mine.
The picture on the right shows a woman near the tipple carrying water to her house from a source about two or three blocks away.
Hers and her neighboring homes were company houses where miners lived.
The houses' neighborhood usually had a company store in it from which the residents purchased all of their goods.
