Cooper Township

This map shows the area around author Sarah Eyerly's family farm in Cooper Township, Pennsylvania.

The map includes the coal mining towns of Peale and Grassflat, and the island visited by eighteenth-century Moravian missionary Christian Friedrich Post, as well as the 1772 camping place of the Native Moravian congregation at Moravian Run along the Great Shamokin Path.

To learn more about the Great Shamokin Path and to listen to a modern-day video soundscape recorded at Peale in the summer of 2018, see the sound map, "The Great Shamokin Path." For more information on the 1772 journey of the Native Moravian congregation, see the interactive map, "The Journey of the Native Gemeine from Friedenshütten II to Friedenstadt."
