Carroll Township, situated in the Horseshoe, also known as the Great Bend of the Monongahel a River, includes the Horseshoe Bottom in which Donora is now located. There has been much co al development in this township, and along the river are many mills, principally owned by th e American Steel and Wire Company and located in Donora, which is built on the site of West C olumbia.
