ASC Now Services Consolidation Coal Company Records

The Archives Service Center recently received the records of the Consolidation Coal Company, which were recently transferred to Pitt from the Hagley Museum and Library (Delaware). Known then as Consol when it was incorporated in Maryland on March 8, 1860 for the purpose of effecting a merger of a number of coal operators mining the Georges Creek basin in Allegany County, Maryland, this company is the forerunner of today's CONSOL Energy, Inc. Minute books and contract files provide the most comprehensive documentation in this collection. We are pleased this collection is now available to researchers at Pitt.
