History & History Related Items

Tuscarora history:

Tuscarora was a coal-mining town and lively community during the late 1800s and first half of the 19th century. The town, which now sports a single bar and, now and then, one small general store, once claimed many bars and rooming houses that catered to the large minework community. It is believed that the Molly Maguires were active in the town and that several of its members lived there. During the past fifty to seventy years, the town shrank in population as the coal industry contracted dramatically and the mines around the town were closed. It is now a nice sleepy town of well-kept houses, yards and several churches.
