Pardoe, a station on the P. S. & L. E. Railroad, is a sprightly village of several hundred inhabitants. Its growth has been dependent upon the activity of the adjoining coal mines, which have given occupation to the people of the community. It was laid out in 1869 by the Mercer Mining and Manufacturing Company. Lots for school and church purposes were donated at the inception. Three churches, a Presbyterian, a Methodist and a Catholic,

have been since established, the organizations dating back some ten years. Bernard Heidrich started the first store. The property finally fell into the hands of C. M. Derickson, of Mercer.
