    Mostly posting this because the exterior is great and a few other buildings in town are incredible (added a few pics of those) although most are remuddled. It’s the kind of town you wish you could have unlimited funds to restore the whole thing to what it was. The aerial view of the land surrounding the town shows how it came to be so built up, coal. 1950’s eBay postcard, the building is on the right.

      Nice brownstone commercial block that looks older than 1916. Lots of space at $15pSF with live/work zoning. Wish that vintage clock was still hanging on it but you could get another one.

      I think you just described every small town in PA! I grew up there; it’s fascinating and a little sad.

    So cool! Full of character! I like the lino rug in particular.

    One of the problems with owning a main street building, and wanting to live in it, is no place to park your car.

    This though comes with a garage!

    I am quite curious as to what is under all the dropped ceilings and new walls?

    One guy purchased a main street building with a dropped ceiling. He poked his head above it…and found a huge domed stained-glass skylight!

    I’m loving the facade of the Elks building!

    The Union National Bank and Elks buildings are so nice (on the outside). And this one for sale has a lot of cool features. I like the linoleum, and where there are hardwood floors, they look like they’re in good shape. I’m surprised I haven’t heard of Mahanoy City—I used to travel around in Pennsylvania just south of there a lot. I wanna go visit!

    Beautiful brownstone for sure.

    I thought this looked familiar.To drive my Mom to Lewisburg from the Phila area, I’d take 309 to 54 and go straight through Mahanoy City. (We’d pick up 61 in Ashland, detour around Centralia(!!, crossing the river at Sunbury. Mahonoy City itself looks kind of dingy to drive through, being in the coal regions, the area is depressed. Still it is a picturesque drive, avoiding the big highways 🙂
