State St. at the Coblentz Farm, Greentown
Summer 1998
Greentown was once a major production center for NATCO, a ceramic tile manufacturer. In the middle of the century, a fire broke out in one of the extrusion plants, the plant folded, and Greentown became a rural town until its recent development.

The Coblentzes were Amish who did the threshing for the area farming industry. Across the street was a Hoover farm, usually cropped by the residents (Now owned by the Kleins). The farm has a small woods which housed a camp where Boy Scouts frequented into the 1970's.
