This wooden tipple at Darragh, PA is on the property of the Cambruzzi Coal Co. However, the Madison Gas Coal Company was the first concern to mine coal at Darragh in 1890.

Most of the patch housing at Darragh has been drastically altered and modernized, turning it into a suburb of Irwin and Jeanette. These people may have added a bay window and vinyl siding to their house, but the slate dump remains in the background of Darragh.
