Bear Vally Ghost Town, Schuylkill County
Ever here of the town of Bear Valley?
This is the general store for the town of Bear Valley! .....Yes there was a
village that existed near the RCTR Club ! From about the mid 1800's till as
late as the 1960's people lived back the entrance road of the club. In fact
it was about 2 miles farther west of the camp entrance, just beyond the
gates on the "Now - State Game Lands". The village was created to house the
workers of the Susquehanna Coal Co (The ruins of that mine still exist
today) The mine closed around 1930, but some stayed for the solitude of
mountain living. .Nothing of
the town remains today. even the clearing has grown full of trees. Here is
a diagram of the town.
