McConnells Mill - Safe for Now

One of my favorite places has been saved from being spoiled. For 3 years, Sechan Limestone Industries has tried to locate a landfill just 300 yards from McConnells Mill State Park. Located in Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, the park encompasses 2,546 acres of the spectacular Slippery Rock Creek Gorge. At the bottom of the gorge there is a restored mill and covered bridge, accessible by a roadway that winds between large, room-sized boulders on the hillside.

McConnells Mill is a haven of peace and serenity that deserves to be protected! Thankfully, the company has ended the process of trying to appeal the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection's denial of a permit to locate the landfill on this site.
