Yellow Dog Village is an old mining village built in the 1910s by Pittsburgh Limestone as housing for their employees. The company built the houses on the condition that the employees would not unionize. Limestone mining died off in the 1930s. The homes were gradually abandoned, with the last stragglers leaving in 2011.
In 2014, new owners bought the land and homes. They hope to restore the property and open it to the public as a historic "camp" where people can stay and learn about the lives of the miners and the town. Currently, the land is private property and off-limits to visitors without permission.
