On June 18 at 7:00PM at the Library Fire Hall, The South Park Historical Society (SPHS) will host guest speaker The Honorable Michael E. McCarthy, Fifth Judical District of Pennsylvania.    He will present "My Life as a 'Can-Do' Seabee".   Come celebrate our 29th anniversary that night!  As always, admission and refreshments are free!

Our group has written two books, which are full of pictures and each are available for $20 including tax.  Purchase these books at South Park Library or at our museum on Pleasant Street.    One book is about the creation of our Township, the coal mines, Montour RR, schools, churches and more.   The second book covers the history of South Park County Park from the beginning through the Allegheny County Fair years.    Many pictures and lots of history from long ago.      

The SPHS will be on our summer hiatus for July and August with no meetings or programs but we will resume on September 17.
