65 acre tract in southwest PA near Point Marion, PA and Morgantown, WV. Divided by Stewartstown Road, there is 15 acres on the north side with a wooded bluff overlooking Cheat River about 400 feet below. Beautiful view of river and mountains. This section contained 3 acres of Pittsburgh coal that was deep mined. I have seen the coal facing and estimate it to be eight feet high. I think much of the coal remains, but there are no maps for verification. In any case, considerable coal should remain in support pillars. Between bluff and road there is a field that needs brush hogging. This field slopes downward toward the south which would give good exposure for solar panels. There is a well but it has been covered over for safety reasons so condition and capacity are unknown.

South side has approx. 8 acre field, with two old houses. The last time I saw them they had coal furnaces. Remainder (42 acres) is wooded. The creek in the valley is contaminated with mine acid originating in WV. There was a spring below the houses that was used for drinking water and filling water tanks.
