Monessen has two anniversary dates, associated with its founding – both in September. The first, September 3 commemorates the day, in 1898 when Monessen was carved out of Rostraver Township and forged into a Borough. The second date, September 21 commemorates the day in 1921, when Monessen went from a Borough to a Third-Class City. This year is the 100th anniversary of the latter.

The City’s new Human Relations Commission, consisting of Chairperson Courtney Moran, Co-Chair Darla Holmes, Secretary Julian Naphier, and Alan Duncan and Matthew Kowasic, along with Monessen Mayor Matt Shorraw and the Greater Monessen Historical Society are coordinating a Founder’s Day event this year.

The event will be held between 4th Street and 6th Street on Donner Avenue on Sunday, September 26 from 1:00PM – 4:00PM, and will be set up like a street fair. Local businesses are encouraged to participate, either by setting up tables or opening their doors for the event. Organizers hope to have local businesses and organizations setting up booths along Donner Avenue, as well as food trucks, music, and activities.

Organizers hope this event will be an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of Monessen and its people and showcase the wonderful community the Monessen is. A new City Flag, which was designed last year, will be on display. Leading up to the event, the City is hoping to secure donations to install benches and garbage cans along Donner Avenue to help beautify the area.
