Eclipse company town history

The Eclipse Company Town, originally known as Hocking , was built by the Hocking Valley Coal Company between 1900 and 1902. It was operated by the Johnson Brothers, for whom Johnson Road was named.  The mine was first known as the Johnson Brothers Coal Company. The company town sits atop Eclipse Mine #4; one of several mines operated by the Hocking Valley Coal Company.​

​The Town Today

The town is comprised of twelve company houses, one shotgun house and the Company Store. In 1999, five houses (including the shotgun house) were moved from the top of the hill above Johnson Road to  the camp area.  This is the only area of the company town to survive.  The houses are currently home to several types of businesses, as well as residences.  The restoration of the former company store was completed in 2008 and now serves as a restaurant and events center known as Kiser’s Barbeque at Eclipse.

Eclipse Company Town is proud to be part of the Little Cities of Black Diamonds and on the National Register of Historic Places as designated by the US Department of the Interior and the Ohio Historical Society.
