History Along the River By Lachlan Loudon

One cannot talk about the history of Greene County, Pennsylvania without mentioning the rich history of coal mining. This industry not only was key to the county, but was the coal mining workhorse for the entire state of Pennsylvania.

The Dilworth Coal Company. Photo provided by Brice and Linda Rush’s Private Collection.

The county went from bust to boom thanks to its contribution to Pittsburgh’s nationwide steel manufacturing empire. Working as a former rail corridor, the trail was once a key part in the county’s coal operation, running alongside the Monongahela River. In order for one to appreciate the scenic beauties of the Greene River Trail, one must also understand its rich history and its contribution to the industrial economy of its day.


At the dawn of the 20th century, commercial coal mining was introduced to Greene County. The Dilworth Coal Company constructed Dilworth Mine in Rices Landing. This historic mine would be the first in the state to follow guidelines and regulations set by the Pennsylvania Department of Mines. All of this coal was shipped to the Pittsburgh market to contribute to the rapidly growing steel industry. The Monongahela River made this operation possible, as the river led to the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers 60 miles north in Pittsburgh.

In present day, sites along the Greene River Trail show remnants of old barges that used to carry out coal from these coal mines attached to the trail. The economic development of the past was dependent on the commercial coal industry, and the area now known as the Greene River Trail brought industry and prosperity to the county in the early 1900s. About ten years later, the Crucible Coal Company began to construct Greene County’s second largest coal mine along the river, the Crucible Mine. The creation of the Crucible Mine paved the way for a booming industry for the next several decades. The mine’s coal would be shipped up to Midland, in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, where it would be converted into coke for steel production. The Greene River Trail not only shows the remnants of an industry that changed Greene County, but one that played a part in the national economy, as the coal production in the county would surpass all other counties as it makes up 75% of the state’s coal as of 2016.

The Crucible Mine stopped production in 1961. After Crucible closed its doors, the mine was maintained by the Pittsburgh Coal Company and then transferred to National Mines Corporation. Under the Monongahela River, which hikers will see near the end of the trail, a tunnel was dug to connect with the Isabella Mine in Fayette County. Coal was still being removed from the Crucible reserves until the Isabella Mine closed its doors in 1984. By this time, Greene County was first in producing coal in the state, harvesting 18% of the statewide coal supply. The first part of the Greene River Trail opened in 2000, with the path towards Crucible finished in 2008. In order for the trail to be completed, Crucible mine shafts had to be sealed, decrepit buildings were demolished, and waste coal piles had to be dealt with. The trail ends at Old Ferry Road and River Hill Road. What used to be a critical spot for the coal industry is now a peaceful place to hike, bike, or walk your dogs. The trail starts on the southern side of the South Fork of Tenmile Creek at the Greene Cove Yacht Club marina. A mural stands tall picturing a family walking down

the trail, with kayakers on the river below, all enjoying the even-tempered fall day. A walk along this trail would yield sights of peaceful woodlands with large coal mining operations overhead in the distance, with remnants of older mines and barges nearby. These buildings, once the soul of the county, are now relics of the past. The trail is incredibly quiet, as what once embodied industrial America is now nature’s playground. Wildlife in the area includes deer, woodpeckers, chipmunks, and other furry friends that call the riverside forest home. There are a large variety of unique birds native to the area, including the Yellow-Billed Cuckoo, Eastern Bluebird, Tree Swallow, Red-Bellied Woodpecker, Red-Tailed Hawk, Turkey Vulture, Great Horned Owl, and the Belted Kingfisher. About two miles in, you’ll pass through Crucible, the historic mining town. A welded sculpture of a hiker can also be seen on the trail near this point, and no, it does not mind having its picture taken. Another two miles, and you’ll reach Rices Landing. The long path is filled with twenty informational signs that give historical and informational background on coal mining, the W.A. Young & Sons Foundry and Machine Shop, the Monongahela River, and the local wildlife.

The trail is tied to rich history, but also is a space for nature’s beauty. The rustic remains of the mines that exist today can still be seen, and not as ruin, but rather a time capsule for the county’s roots. The waters of the Monongahela reflect the sunlight through the shady birch trees that encase the trail’s walls, echoing the horns of steamboats and the clinks of pickaxes on dusty black coal. The Greene River Trail is more than a walk along the river shore, but a walk through the history of Greene County and what this region represents.

History Along the River

Now, let’s take a look back in time 100 years ago. Walking down the river trail, one would see busy coal mines and be hit with the dusty, aroma musk of freshly mined coal as a massive barge floats upstream towards Pittsburgh, carrying tons and tons of coal. Millions of tons of coal came out of these mines along the trail at one point in time. A normal occurrence would be the steamboat captain R.B. Kendall who made daily trips from Rices Landing to catch the morning train at West Brownsville. Other passenger-filled steamboats that one would spot on the river trail would include the Dauntless, Elizabeth, Adam Jacobs and the James G. Blaine.

Recreation Nestled in the southwestern corner of Pennsylvania, Greene County is home to spectacular natural beauty, which accommodates a range of outdoor activities. From the tranquil hike along a beautiful trail to the action packed competitions in the natural amphitheater of the rolling hills, there is something for everyone.

Explore Nature Trails Warrior Trail

A 67-mile path used by Native Americans over 5,000 years ago as a commerce trail across Greene County from the Monongahela River to the Ohio River in West Virginia.

Greene River Trail

The seven mile rail-trail along the Monongahela River provides tranquil views of the river that are perfect for those interested in walking, jogging and bicycling.

Mason-Dixon Historical Park

Retrace the steps of history to the top of Brown’s Hill in Mason-Dixon Historical Park where Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon ended their survey 23 miles short of their goal in October 1767. Located in State Game Land #302, Enlow Fork is an easy and scenic trail that follows a closed dirt road with two iron ridges along the stream.

Ryerson Station State Park

The park’s 13 miles of trails allow visitors to explore the park on foot and on cross-country skis in the winter. The trails traverse many habitats like mature forests, wet valley bottoms, evergreen plantations and fields in ecological succession.

Upper Monongahela River Water Trail

A recreational waterway on the Monongahela River. The upper section extends 68 miles from Fairmont, West Virginia to Maxwell Lock and Dam in Pennsylvania.

Greene County brings an array of high-action motor sports for the thrill seeking visitor. From ATV and motocross national championships at the prestigious High Point Raceway near Mt. Morris to the premiere truck and tractor pulling series in the United States at the Greene County Fairgrounds in Waynesburg, there is no shortage of horsepower. There might not be a better place to see the grandeur of the full display of the sport of motocross than Greene County’s High Point Raceway. This track weaves its way around a deep valley, treating the riders to constant elevation changes. From the slippery off-camber corners to the high-speed runs to and from the valley floor, no section of this track is completely flat, which makes it a true challenge and fun racetrack. But what makes it tough for the athletes makes it great for the spectators, because several vantage points atop the valley offer full views of the track below. Further, High Point’s jumps were engineered to sit right in front of the main spectator areas, letting fans get close while they watch the riders go big. Some call it moto theater—and it’s a show filled with ups and downs, twists and turns. The highly popular Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League brings uniquely American competition that highlights the combination of sheer horsepower and driver skill with various vehicle classes of turbo chargers and alcohol-injected drag racing-type engines. The roar of the grandstand audience rises up to match the roar of the engine as the trucks and tractors surge down the pull track with the weighted sled. Plan your trip today and don’t miss out on this year’s competitions!

Scenic Views: Mail Pouch Barns By Grace Zablosky

Driving through country roads and farmlands, one can get a clear view of Greene County’s historic heritage through its preserved buildings and landmarks. Rustic barns with the words “Chew Mail Pouch Tobacco” painted across their sides are easy to spot surrounded by the scenic countryside. Mail Pouch barns are a surviving testament to a new and bold advertising campaign of its time. This unique and somewhat unusual method often featured the same message: “Chew Mail Pouch Tobacco - Treat Yourself to the Best.” The traditional black background with yellow and white painted on the side of barns grew to be a familiar sight in local areas and spread across the country. These Greene County Mail Pouch barns are important both historically and culturally. They continue to be important reminder of the ever evolving methods of advertisement and the ingenuity of salespeople to find a method to sell their product. They also serve as a symbol of an idyllic life where life was simpler and slower. It is not uncommon for people to take an easy drive and see how many Mail Pouch barns they can find.


This advertising campaign was the idea of brothers Aaron and Samuel Bloch of the Bloch Brothers Tobacco Company of Wheeling, West Virginia. At the time there was not any standard for billboards and advertising and as such, the sides of buildings and barns were a popular method of advertising to the public. The Bloch brothers advertisements for Mail Pouch Tobacco began appearing on the side of barns in 1892. The Bloch Brothers Tobacco Company used this method of advertisement for more than a century. Peaking in the 1960’s, the number of Mail Pouch barns rose to approximately 20,000 barns located in 22 states. Compensation was even provided for the farmers who allowed their barns to be painted with free tobacco, cash, or magazine subscriptions. Even when billboards began to pop up across the country, Mail Pouch decided to stick to what they had always done. This was a beneficial move for them as they gained additional barns alongside highways from companies who had switched

over to billboard advertisement. At their peak, it is said you could not drive more than ten miles before seeing another Mail Pouch barn. While the majority of the country rapidly progressed towards urban sprawl and new land development, Greene County has remained primarily rural and much of the rural way of life remains to this day. Harley Warrick, of Belmont, Ohio, and friend of Greene County, is given the credit for much of the painting and touching up of Mail Pouch barns he worked on barns nearly 20,000 times and became the most famous painter associated with Mail Pouch barns. Mr. Warrick began his career painting the barns when he returned home in 1946 from serving in World War II. He joined a crew of barn painters working on his family’s barn on a whim as the idea of working on a dairy farm was much less attractive to him. Warrick found his new occupation enjoy-

Mail Pouch Barns

Mail Pouch and other smokeless tobacco products were incredibly popular among coal miners as it helped cut down the dust when they chewed it while at work. Some thrifty users would even chew for a long time and when it became weak they would dry it out and use it in their tobacco pipes. As Greene County had numerous coal mines at one time, Mail Pouch must have been a very popular product. 20,000 Mail Pouch barns were such a common sight no one necessarily noticed them, until 1965 and the Highway Beautification Act, also known as “Lady Bird’s Bill” for the former First Lady, Lady Bird

Johnson. It outlawed any kind of signs or advertisement within 600 feet of a highway. This act was meant to protect the natural and scenic beauty along federal-aid highways, Mail Pouch barns were also included in the removal of billboards. Thankfully, in 1974, a West Virginian senator took action and appealed the Beautification Bill and it was amended by Congress to exclude any signs on natural or rustic surfaces from being removed. At one time there had been around 20,000 barns carrying the Mail Pouch insignia, today less than 2,000 remain. The last Mail Pouch barn that had the paint retouched was completed by Warrick in Barkcamp State Park in Belmont, Ohio on October 2, 2000. In Greene County, there were at least thirty Mail Pouch barns located along the major thoroughfares of Routes 18, 19, 21, and 88. Over time, due to weather and natural decay, only seven remain on private properties. There are Mail Pouch barns still standing in Waynesburg, Mount Morris, Carmichaels, Wind Ridge, and Sugar Grove. We encourage you to keep an eye out for these Mail Pouch barns the next time you are out for a drive. Some are in better shape than others, but knowing that each one was hand-painted by people who valued their work and community makes them even more cherished. Through the entrepreneurial spirits of the two Bloch brothers, these Mail Pouch barns have added to the heritage and landscapes of communities all across the country.

able, but the pay was not great. One barn would take about 6 hours and was painted without the use of stencils. He would start with the “E” in Chew and go from there. They would paint 2 barns a day and made $32.00 a week which was about average in 1946. Not regretting his quick decision, Warrick traveled with his painting crew to various locations, often sleeping in the truck of cheap motels. He recalled that they worked in every kind of weather. Strong gusts of wind would threaten to blow away both painter and ladder. Using ice picks and sticking them into the side of the barn to steady the ladder would prove to be their most valued tool. For the next forty-six years, Warrick continued to hand paint Mail Pouch barns up until his retirement in 1992. You can learn more about Harley Warrick by reading his book The Barn Painter that he wrote with his son, Roger.

Trip Recommendations

When preparing for a tour of a working farm, plan on being outside in the dirt and grass. Please be diligent of your surroundings and follow instructions from your guide for your and the farm’s safety. While private tours can be customized, farm tours are recommended for older children to adults due to the nature of working farms and obstacles you may find.

She said she still remembers Lippincott the way it used to be, with the blacksmith shop open along State Route 221 and the brick building that was her grade school is now Open Door Christian School. She remembers the little store too. Her father, James Hawkins, and his nine siblings walked to the one room schoolhouse that is now shrouded in overgrowth but still stands near the Cox Farm Covered Bridge. Lena and her husband, Phil Galing, returned from Germany and were considering animals to raise on the farm. After attending Waynesburg’s first Sheep and Fiber Festival in 2003, they decided to raise alpacas for their fine fibers. They bought their first five alpacas in November 2005. Fun Fact: Did you know Abraham Lincoln’s campaign coat was made of alpaca fiber from England? Alpacas are native to the Andes Mountains in South America and were finally imported to America in 1983. Pennsylvania was the first state to officially recognize alpacas as livestock rather than exotic species. This helps owners receive farm loans and take advantage of other benefits. At one time the farm had 36 alpacas with fleece of multiple colors. Now the pastures of Lippencott Alpacas contain only white alpacas and some of the females may be pregnant with “crias” or babies. Just so you know, alpacas enjoy being scratched under the chin and will step politely out of the way when asked. Plan a day out with the family and head to Lippencott Alpacas. Experiencing the softness of alpaca fiber is something you don’t want to miss. Then explore the farm store filled with hats, gloves, scarfs, socks and stuffed animals, or check out the variety of unique yarns to create a custom project of your own. If you are unsure of your knitting capabilities, Lippencott Alpacas even has a knitting group that welcomes new students!

Known for their cuteness, the alpacas at Lippencott Alpacas are always a popular treat for individuals and families. To keep the family farming tradition alive, Lena and Phil Galing began the alpaca breeding farm in 2005 on Lena’s family farm. Have a chance to get up close and personal with the alpaca, feel their fiber and learn how the animals fuel our economy and keep people warm.

Lena Hawkins Galing is the fourth generation on a Century Farm. Her great-grandfather, Joseph Hawkins, purchased the old Bell Farm after the Civil War and cultivated everything a family needed.
