The Last Building in Peale Ghost Town Gone

This is the site of the former Company Store of Clearfield Bituminous Coal Co in ghost town of Peale, Clearfield Co., PA. The town was dismantled in early 1900s after coal mines were depleted; and houses re-located. However, the old company store survived for decades as a hunting camp until it was burned down a year ago. Finally, Peale, the birth place of my Dad's adopted mother (and aunt), Martha Streich, who married Robert William Kramp, is no longer in the picture. However, it survives in our written history and the note you are now reading.
