Just amazing the company that built the homes has vanished off the fae of the earth. Well someone owned it. They should be found and held responsible. Then again they built home at Love Canal too.
Nothing like wondering if you home is going to fall into a hole in the ground.

My dad worked in the copper mines in Copperhill, Tn. I didn't have no idea...that Marietta had mines and I have lived in and around this area my whole life. Very Interesting....and Thank you for posting. ;)
I worry about my mothers home going under ground also. The whole area was mined. Tennessee Chemical went bankrupt...and left out.
