Above are maps of Little Italy. Little Italy was a quaint little village nestled among the rocks and hills one mile above Nesquehoning on the top of Wash Shanty Hill. The settlement was started in 1884 and occupied mostly by Italians. In 1912 residents of Little Italy got the bad news, it was doomed to go. Because it sat on top of a large vein of coal the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company decided to extend its working directly underneath it and this made it unsafe for anyone to live there. It was decided to move Little Italy to Newtown. Newtown was located on the north side of Nesquehoning Creek. By 1917 almost every one from Little Italy was moved to Newtown. When Little Italy was moved to Newtown the name was changed to New Columbus. One of the maps shows where two veins of coal , the Primrose and the Orchard, went under the village.

rapic1140.jpg (34293 bytes) During WWII families would display a flag in their window. The number of stars on the flag indicated how many family members were in the armed services, if a family member was killed, the blue star was replaced by a gold star. The flag in this picture was the one that hung in the window of the Nesquehoning Hose Co. #1. It indicated 53 members of the fire company were in the armed services. There are 15 stars on the back and 38 stars on the front. The flag has one gold star. During WWII Nesquehoning was one of the most patriotic towns in the Country. On a per capita basis, Nesquehoning had more people in the armed services than any other town in the whole United States, (over 1200 men and women.) Thirty-four people from Nesquehoning lost their lives in WWII.
