The CF&I sociological Department took great pride in in trying to improve the life of the miners.
The homes were owned by CF&I and of the camps were developed over the course of time, from installing water systems and electricity to the homes. For these luxuries the miners paid a fix sum for there homes. 25 cents per room and 25 cents per light per month. CF&I company houses were three, four or five rooms. For a home with five rooms and five lights would have cost the miner $2.50 per month.
