Adelaide

fayette | Adelaide, PA Mile 92

This coke-producing company town, named for industrialist Henry Clay Frick’s wife, was developed during the heyday of Pennsylvania’s coal and coke industry. Several batteries of coke ovens still stand near here. The remains of Old Overholt Distillery are just across the river, near GAP Mile 91. At mile 93, remains of beehive ovens can be seen. Look only; they are on private property.
