A book signing event was held on Thursday, July 14 at Vargo’s Newsstand in Fayette City with the new release of Eric Moskala’s ‘Voices of Fayette CityPennsylvania: Recollections from the 1940s’. This is Moskala’s second book on the once lively town. His first book published in 2019 was entitled, ‘From Freeport to Fayette City: A History of a Small Town in Southwestern Pennsylvania from its founding in 1800 to its Zenith in the 1920s’.

“I was truly overwhelmed with the turnout and the obvious excitement and joy of those who attended the event,” said Moskala, a former Fayette City resident. “During the 1940s, Main Street in Fayette City was often filled with shoppers and people interacting with their friends and neighbors,” recalled Moskala. 

At the event this past July on Main Street once again, “I would like to think that we shared that same spirit, if only for a brief time.” Fayette City also gained a reputation as the biggest little baseball town in western Pennsylvania for its sandlot championship teams.
