Windber, PA

Windber, in southwestern Pennsylvania near Johnstown, was established as a coal mining town around 1900. Migrants from many countries in southern and eastern Europe settled in the community as miners and their cultural, religious, and political heritage is still apparent in the town today. Photos taken in 2002.

Updated photos from 2007 at end of gallery.
