Library News

Retired Keystone Oaks High School history teacher Edd Hale will be at the library on Tuesday, October 10 at 7 p.m. to discuss the Great Castle Shannon Bank Robbery.

On May 14, 1917, the sleepy mining hamlet of Castle Shannon erupted in violence as four desperadoes robbed the town’s only bank and found themselves caught in a Wild West-style shootout with the townspeople. Hear how this holdup was planned, executed, and partly foiled as we look at one of Pittsburgh’s most notorious crimes. Based on extensive research of court documents, period newspapers, and even an eyewitness interview, this almost unknown story rivals other well-known tales of the Daltons, Youngers, and James Brothers. Registration is appreciated.
