Photographs of Croweburg, a small unincorporated community in Crawford County located halfway between Arma and Mulberry. Croweburg was made up of four separate mining camps: #14 Croweburg Camp, #15 Croweburg Camp, #16 Croweburg Camp, and New Camp. Being about a half mile apart from one another, the community unified as Croweburg. The town took its name from the Crowe Coal Co., the principal employer of the miners. Croweburg had its own post office from 1908 until 1972. The community still exists. Photographs include images of a church, community hall, a local lake, street scenes, a school, and a meeting hall.

Date: Between 1900 and 1940
