The Ancient American Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania

By Lawrence Gallant

“America had often been discovered before Columbus, but it had always been hushed up.”Oscar Wilde

Few people reading this article have any idea of the fabulous cultures that once inhabited our local areas of South Park, Mingo, Finleyville, Elrama, Bunola, Monongahela, etc., or are aware of the wonders beneath our feet yet to be found. In fact, the entirety of western Pennsylvania all the way to Erie, has evidences of people who lived and visited here back to days B.C. After previous articles the author has been ridiculed by people who “know better” so we will tread lightly here until you join our historical society and become educated.
