Built in 1902 by Frederick C. Keighley, this 100+ year old mansion in Uniontown, PA has an interesting and haunted history. Frederick C. Keighley (1885-1915) built this home for his wife and their 7 children in 1902.
Originally from Yorkshire, England, Mr. Keighely moved to Ohio with his family at the age of 11. Shortly after, he began assisting his father as bookkeeper for the Mahoning Coal Company in Youngstown. He had a true passion for science which led to his rise as a prominent businessman having served as general manager, superintendent, and inspector for multiple mines and mining companies in Uniontown, PA and the surrounding areas. Mr. Keighley was also a member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks and served as President of the School Board. He was a beloved and active member of the Uniontown community. On April 14th, 1915, Frederick C. Keighley was found dead in his garage with a gunshot wound to the head. It is believed that this was an act of suicide. Some think that he was distraught over the illness of his daughter, but it is most likely due to the closing of the First National Bank of Uniontown. However, there is some mystery surrounding Mr. Keighley's untimely death. Rumors circulated that he was hanged in his office by his own staff and that the suicide was later staged in his garage. We invite you to explore the Keighley Mansion where you may ask him yourself. He just might answer you.

Frederick Keighley was a businessman, father and husband. He had a long list of organizations and positions which he worked hard to improve. J V Thompson was a friend of Keighley, so much so that his two grandsons were wards of Thompson. When the First National Bank failed in 1915, Keighley became so distraught that he committed suicide in the garage behind his home on East Fayette Street. It has been reported that he at first, armed with his gun, went looking for Thompson and, when unable to find him, took his own life. The notice of his death appeared in many newspapers. This one was published by The Morning Herald on April 15, 1915. The Pittsburgh Post Gazette also published a story on the same day. Its headlines, as you can see, mentions the relationship with J V Thompson. The Ancestry timeline shows the names of his children and wife. Some of you may remember Grace who taught piano lessons for many years. She was also a teacher at North Union High School. Since Keighley was a superintendent at Oliver, I included two photos which I found on coalandcoke.blogspot.com. This website offers a very good history of the Oliver mines. I believe there were 4 mines in total.
