Eckley Miner's Village
Eckley Miner's village is a state-owned museum only two miles south of Freeland. This website tells the history of the village.

Apparently much of the land in the Hazleton area a hundred years ago was owned by mining interests, though one stretch of land did open up for cultivation. In order to foster its development, someone had the bright idea to call the place Freehold, that is until the post office said, "Time out. We already have a Freehold in New Jersey." So the name was changed to Freeland, to advertise the Free (available for sale) Land. "
