August 25, 1910 Article From Newspaper Announcing
the Development of McIntyre, the "New Town"


This article appeared on the first page of the Indiana Evening Gazette on August 25, 1910. The third paragraph mentions the building of a company store as well as the moving of homes from the abandoned coal mining town of Soldier in Jefferson County into a "new town" near Jacksonville. That town was McIntyre. The Hyde-Murphy Company was responsible for building many of the company houses for the Rochester and Pittsburgh Coal Company. Some sentences have been highlighted for easier reading.
