Little Daniels Run Road. The coal company purchased this property and rented it out. The Bogochenko family lived here in the 1970's. The coal company gave the land to the Pa Game Commission in the 1980's. Before the company turned the property over to the Game Commission to make it a hunting preserve they demolished all the buildings.

This farm was patened by one of the four Shidler brothers in the 1780's. Shidler sold the land in 1805 to Peter Mowl and moved on to Ohio. This property came down to Peter's son Abraham Mowl. Then Abraham's son, Charles Myers Mowl(1833-1907). After Charles death it was sold out of the family and the structure in the photo was built sometime after 1907.
