Built in 1911 and once known as the “Garden City,” the Concrete City near Nanticoke, PA was seen as a model of industrial efficiency and housing. The “city” consisted of twenty two-story concrete cast duplexes. The Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Railroad Coal Division built the complex to house forty workers and their families for their Truesdale Colliery. The houses were situated around a courtyard with a playground and swimming pool.
