The Eckley breaker has seen better days.
Its future is in jeopardy.
Many say it's a situation that must be rectified.
That's because the structure might be the last surviving symbol of the old-time coal breakers that once dotted northeastern Pennsylvania.
"The Huber breaker is gone and the St. Nicholas is coming down," says Bode Morin, site administrator, Eckley Miners' Village, Weatherly.
"There will be nothing left in northeastern Pennsylvania."
Truth be told, the Eckley coal breaker was never actually a breaker.
