Looking Back


September 7, 2022

This week's Looking Back photo is the property of Marie (Ahrens) Mindrup of Alhambra. It shows the dump at DeCamp Mine with the miners' housing in the foreground. Marie lived in the farmhouse on DeCamp Road nearest the mine until 1959. She said some of the slag was used on area roads through the years. The DeCamp Coal Mining Company was in operation from 1903 until November 1913.
