Looking forward to your drop.

This gift shop was once a tavern and a stop on the underground railroad. Local folklore claims that during the vulnerable daylight hours the stationmaster chained the runaway slaves in the basement. The rumor says you can see hooks in the walls used to confine the slaves. When you get here make sure you stop and see Rachael next door. She will have a cold one waiting for you.
Sorry for the delay in posting this. I had it already to go before noon but the site would not let me sign on.
Good job Joe!
Thanks, here are some better shots.
Olde English Shoppe, Mercer, PA:
Right next door to Rachel's Roadhouse:
There is a wedding and banquet room in this recreation center, which is located in a borough that according to the 2000 U.S. census, had a population of zero.
hmmmm, I know where that is, now to find the time to go up there, and dodge the rain drops that seem to have moved in.
Damn you Schmoe, I was riding in the rain all day yesterday coming back from Skaneateles, NY and shooting for this, but saw half way back that you had got it, haha.
Found your tag, but would've meant I wouldn't get home until well after dark. So decided against it.
Good tag man.
That's funny, I spent the afternoon in the rain grabbing and dropping the tag.
A little history of S.N.P.J.
S.N.P.J. is a borough located in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania. According to the 2000 U.S. census, it has a population of zero, although the borough itself counted 14 residents in 2003.<SUP id=cite_ref-zeropop_0-0 class=reference></SUP>
S.N.P.J. stands for Slovenska Narodna Podporna Jednota (Slovene National Benefit Society), a fraternal society and financial co-operative based in Imperial, Pennsylvania.
The society applied to have their 500 acre (2 km²) recreation center in western Pennsylvania designated as a separate municipality in 1977. The S.N.P.J. borough was created so that the society could, among other things, get their own liquor license.<SUP id=cite_ref-zeropop_0-1 class=reference></SUP> North Beaver Township, Pennsylvania, the municipality in which the center was originally located, restricted the sale of alcohol on Sundays.
S.N.P.J. once had the distinction of being the least-populated borough in the state until a mine fire beneath Centralia made that borough unsafe to live in.
As of 2007, Centralia had a population of 9. I rode there this past weekend and there are still at least 3 or 4 houses being lived in.
Don't know when Google maps photos are taken, but note the green lawns.

The structure was constructed in 1868 by the Smith Bridge Company Devised and patented in 1867 by Robert Smith, both tension and compression members were all wood.
If I wasn't in the middle of the 28 hr. oil change on the 950 I would have went after it tonight. Might have to get the Hardley Drivenson out tomorrow.
Believe it or not, the PA ToR map is fully updated.
Please remember to give a good location after the tag is grabbed, either in the thread, or by sending me a PM.
Thanks! Your commitment to the game is appreciated!
Joe, have you gone to the SNPJ Slovenefest?
