Not far from our home near Saxonburg in Western PA is the enclave known as Yellow Dog Village. Built as housing for the nearby limestone mine, residents had to agree to not strike, for which they were known as yellow dogs. The residents embraced this and called their village Yellow Dog Village. Over time, it was formalized as Shadyside Village and was eventually abandoned in 2009 because of drinking water problems. You can learn more about them on Uncovering PA’s website.
