Schmalz Bros & Gack Mine

Owned by Joseph & Charlie Schmalz and Anton Gack, the mine was sold in the early 1930's. At that time there were shipments of coal sent to Wisconsin and Chicago and the companies that the coal was shipped to could not afford to pay for the product, though the brothers did receive some cotton seed meal from one of the companies it was not enough to keep the mine in operation. The mine was sold because of the deteriorated business conditions caused by the great depression.
