The Beaver Meadows Railroad & Coal Company was chartered April 7, 1830, to build a railroad from the mines near Beaver Meadows, Pennsylvania, beyond Broad Mountain along Beaver Creek to Penn Haven and along the Lehigh River through Mauch Chunk to the Lehigh Canal at Parryville, Pennsylvania.[1] The settlement dated to a 1787 land sale to Patrick and Mary Keene, thence to Nathan Beach.
