CLOSPLINT, KY


These coal camp houses at Closplint, KY are well preserved. The Clover Splint Coal Company (hence Closplint) constructed this coal town and coal mine in 1926. That is kind of a late date for a coal company town, and it shows in the "enlightened" and "reformed" arrangement of these company houses. Closplint mines were served by the L&N railroad.
