Guest Speaker to Present on the ‘Old Stone Tavern’

Do you like a good story with complicated characters and dramatic events? Binge-worthy tales with humor, heartbreak, heroes, anti-heroes and villains? Some of the most compelling stories you’ll ever hear are true, local and can be found by digging through history. The South Park Historical Society is dedicated to preserving our local history and bringing some of the most fascinating stories to life with its Guest Speaker Series which returns in March. Save the date - members and non-members are invited to join the South Park Historical Society at the Library Fire Hall on Tuesday, March 19 at 7:00 p.m. for the first Guest Speaker Series presentation of 2019. Speaker Norene Beatty will be presenting Pittsburgh’s Old Stone Tavern.

Two Great Books About Local History

The South Park Historical Society has two books for sale. ‘Historic Snowden Township – South Park Township’ and ‘History of Allegheny County’s South Park Farm Lands to Park Lands’ are on sale. The cost of each book is $20 (tax included) and can be shipped anywhere in the U.S. for an additional $3.25. To order one or both books, call 412-835-9529 or 412-655-4104. These books can also be purchased at the South Park Township Library and the Woods Café on Corrigan Drive.

Museum Restoration

The Historical Society’s museum is still closed due to the flooding that occurred in South Park in June, 2018. But progress is being made and the Historical Society expects the museum to be fully restored and reopened later this year. More information will be provided in future editions of this paper.
