These ovens sit above an old Ligonier Valley Railroad line near Wilpen. They are in pretty deteriorated shape. This complex was constructed circa 1907. The ovens were abandoned in 1918 and nearly all the coal produced at the mine was shipped to outside markets. The mine itself was closed in 1924. The tipple once stood at the southern end of the row of ovens.
|This oven is pretty flat.|
