Inscription.  Brooks mine was never a commercial operation, but large deposits of coal do exist inside. The 150 foot long mine was built as a model in 1902 by Reese Brooks when coal was king in the heating world. It is an example of how Scranton became the anthracite capital of the world from the 1850's to the 1900's.
 
Erected by JFK Division of the Ancient Order of the Hibernians.
