Crescent Coal Company Mine No. 2

.

N. C. Hawley's Coal Mines

Location of N.C. Hawley's coal mines in rural Cincinnati Township, as illustrated by county atlases published in 1891 Tazewell County, Illinois. Hawley's coal mines were located at the end of a rail spur adjacent to the Illinois River bluff line. Some of the buildings illustrated at the mine likely represent workers' housing. This particular property was not the one studied in the project, but rather represents a good example of an earlier generation of mine with an associated company town (preceding the Crescent Mine in date).
