Historic Huber Breaker Sold


ASHLEY — The historic Huber Breaker in Luzerne County has been sold after it’s previous owner filed for bankruptcy back in 2010.

A federal bankruptcy judge approved the sale of the property to a Philadelphia trucking company for $1.2 million on Thursday.

The old breaker is one of the last remaining symbols of the region’s anthracite coal history.

Until that sale is approved at the end of August, the new owner will not say what will happen to the massive monument that paid tribute to the 31,000 people who lost their lives in the anthracite coal mines.
