Hi All,

I currently live in NY but may have the opportunity to move to Ohio in the new future. I know coal burning is alive and well in the Buckeye state but I'm wondering if anyone burns bit and how available both bit and anthracite are there. Also, how's the taxes? Anything is an improvement over NYS but it's all relative.

The Dover/New Philadelphia area is pretty nice but last time I was there I didn't get to spend much time. Anything I should know about? Any particular attractions or interests?

Thanks in advance,

Will

Central fuels is located in new philadelphia, they are part of kimble mining and supply Bituminous coal from many different seams and in many different sizes for home heating. Many people in that area heat with bituminous coal.

Yep,your headin' into Bit Country for sure. I can remember going through the Dover,New Philadelphia and Uhrichsville areas on my way to Piedmont lake for deer hunting as a kid. That's in Belmont County. I remember it being a rural area of communities back then. Let me know how I can be of any help to you.

Would you happen to know what Coalway is asking for their bulk anthracite pea? Do they offer delivery, or is it pick-up only?

Dover, New Phily, Urichsville - Tuscawaras County, Piedmont is in Harrison County. :)

And If it was rural to you back then, it is beyond rural now. Population has been dropping over the years. We hover somewhere around 16k for the 400sq miles of our county. (Harrison)

Thompson bros is stripping coal with 13,500 btu/lb and less than 7% ash out of some land they own in western PA this year, they're making pea stoker for combustioneer's out of it and it works GREAT, I'm burning it right now. I highly recommend it, $100/ton picked up. 330-549-3979 Ask for Dan Thompson and tell him you want the pea stoker they're bringing out of Pennsylvania.

central fuels will screen smaller sizes for you, but you have to request it and it's subject to them not being too busy with other stuff.

Believe it or not,Bluemax,there's a piece of Piedmont Lake In Belmont County. Flushing township with an old access road off of Rt 800 that we stayed off of. I still remember the strip mine being active and hunting over reclaim land later on. This was the early 70's.The road went right down to the Lake. The last I heard,yuppies from the Columbus area had attacked that area due to low land prices and basically destroyed it's good,down-home feel and way of life. Maybe they've moved on,like locusts...
