Seeking Photos

The Society is also still seeking photos of the Washington and Linden Elementary Schools. Photos can be dropped off at the Heritage Museum to be scanned or emailed to monessen@verizon.net.

175th Birthday Celebration for Henry Sellers McKee       

During the year, 2018, the Society will celebrate the 175th birthday of Monessen Founder Henry Sellers McKee. McKee was one of the members of the East Side Land Company, which created Monessen in the late 1890s. We hope to do a joint celebration with the City of Jeannette, as it was also founded by H. Sellers McKee. In Monessen, McKee Avenue is named in his honor.

Historic Dinner

Mark your calendars for the annual historic dinner! It will be held on Saturday, October 20, 2018. The theme will be the 100th anniversary of the ending of the First World War and the establishment of the countries of Czechoslovakia, Poland, and Yugoslavia.
