Eagle Hill : between Five Points and St Clair. Home of the Eagle Hill mines and breaker.
East Franklin : just northwest of Rausch Creek, between old exits 32 and 33 on I-81.
East Mines : between St. Clair and Pottsville
Eaton : about 10 minutes outside of Pittston, near Bowman's Creek.
Ebervale : between Hazleton and Freeland; more specifically between West Oakdale and Harleigh (Harleysville?). There is a reservoir here. The small Ebervale Breaker located across from the reservoir disappeared in the mid-1990s.
Eckley : a historical site between Hazleton and Freeland. Eckley had two previous names in it's long existence. First, Shingletown, long before coal was mined. Later it was called Fillmore, after President James Millard Fillmore. "The Molly Maguires" movie was filmed here. Off Rte 940, bear right at sign instead of going straight into Freeland.
Edgewood : not really a patch, but the south end of Schuylkill Haven. On the edge of town (at the edge of the woods), and at the edge of the only coal washery in the area (which was located in the Schuylkill River).
East Mountain : part of Scranton, up Rte 307 from the end of Moosic Street.
Ellengown (or Ellen Gowan) : between Shendo and Mockanoy City
Englewood : a portion of Butler Township adjoining Frackville
Enterprise : name of the Susquehanna Coal Company's colliery and patch in Shamokin
Erdman : between Gratz and Klingerstown (part of Lykens Twp.)
Excelsior : between Brady and Locust Gap, south over the hill from Kulpmont on Rte 901. World famous for the old Excelsior Inn (good beer taps). Neat ruins of an abandoned Ukrainian Catholic Church!
Exchange (better known as "Atlas") : see Atlas
Eynon : part of the Archbald borough, but recognized as a separate town specifically because of the Welsh miners that settled the region. Former site of 'The North West Mines.' See also upda Eynon.
