Nemacolin is a census-designated place (CDP) in Greene County, Pennsylvania, United States founded as a company town[1] around the workings of a YS&T company owned and operated coal mine in 1917 and named for a legendary Amerindian ally Chief Nemacolin, who showed the Virginia settlers how to cross the successive Allegheny barrier ridges via the Cumberland Narrows and the Nemacolin Trail which Braddock's Expedition widened into a wagon road through the barrier range. The population was 937 at the 2010 census.
