Shelly/ Stella Streets

Make left and walk on low side of Shelly St. Stay on Shelly. Ahead is a large grassy field known as Monongahela Park. At the end of Shelly, look up and down the hill and you will see yellow markers of a 16” gas line that now occupies the former path of the J & L Coal Incline which carried coal from the American Mine near the top of the Slopes to J & L’s iron making facility on the Flats below. The 1300 foot long incline was in operation from 1854 until sometime prior to 1930.
