In 1788, Allegheny County consisted of just seven townships and one city: Moon, Fayette, St. Clair, Mifflin, Elizabeth, Versailles, and Plum, plus Pittsburgh.
Last night, the Bridgeville Area Historical Society hosted a lecture about the history of St. Clair, which would gradually become many smaller townships, including Bridgeville Borough. Area resident Marjorie (Dolanch) Stein was the presenter.
The next historical society presentation is Point of Empire: A Brief Overview of Fort Pitt History, presented by Kathleen Lugarich of the Fort Pitt Museum. That is scheduled for Tuesday, June 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the fire department’s Chartiers Room. Admission is free.
