The Cameron Colliery, later called the Glen Burn, stands out because it was so visible as you entered Shamokin traveling north on route 61. The culm bank created by the waste from the Cameron Colliery mine is still there today. The Burnside Colliery ceased operations during the 1930s. The houses that make up the village of Burnside were originally owned by the coal company. They were sold to the residents in the late 1940s. It was interesting because a 3-story house went for $500.00 and residents had to take a mortgage to buy one!
