The West Jefferson Hills area, (West Elizabeth, Jefferson Hills, Pleasant Hills) has undergone a tremendous transformation over the past century. Farmsteads, log cabins, mom-and-pop stores, early businesses, and one-room schoolhouses have been replaced by housing developments, shopping centers, and commercial areas. 

If you’re curious about the sights and landmarks of the area’s past, come to the Community Rooms of the Jefferson Hills Borough Building on May 22 at 7:00PM and enjoy the West Jefferson Hills Historical Society (WJHHS) program “Now and Then.” 

Directed by WJHHS member and lifelong area resident Keith Pancoast, this free program will display many WJHHS archive photographs of area buildings and sights which once stood. Today these structures are either hidden in plain sight or have been replaced by something else entirely.  Attendees are encouraged to contribute to the discussion by sharing their memories of what used to be here.
