McDonald Trail Station & Meeting House McDonald, PA was founded in 1775 by Irish immigrant John N. McDonald. As the town’s first settler and first businessman, he laid the groundwork for its expansion into a bustling oil and coal community. Serving as a community center, the McDonald Trail Station opened in 2003. Located near the Junction of the Montour and Panhandle trails, the Station also houses historical information and exhibits.

Meadowcroft Rockshelter and Museum of Rural Life

Legend has it that from 1893 until the company closed its doors in 1955, Duncan & Miller Glass employed at least one member of every family in Washington, PA. Not surprisingly then, a former employee’s home has served as the site of the Duncan & Miller Glass Museum since 1993. Located just one block away from where the factory once stood, the Jefferson Avenue address houses Duncan & Miller photos, memorabilia, tools of the trade and, of course, glassware of all shapes, sizes and patterns.

But just as history is slow in the making, it is slow in the uncovering. It wasn’t until 1973 that the University of Pittsburgh’s anthropology department embarked on an archaeological dig on Miller’s property that spanned six years and unearthed artifacts dating back 16,000 years to Native Americans in the pre-Clovis era (a somewhat controversial finding at the time). The excavation also revealed that the Rockshelter was never a permanent settlement (that is until the Miller family purchased the land in the late 1700s), but rather a campsite used by those traveling along Cross Creek. These days, travelers to the Rockshelter have the opportunity to explore the oldest known site of human habitation in North America a little more up close and personal, thanks to the construction of a new observation deck. Named a National Historic Landmark in 2005, the Rockshelter is also recognized as a Pennsylvania Commonwealth Treasure and is an official project of Save America’s Treasures. Visitors also can take a trip back in time to Meadowcroft Village, a carefully recreated 19th century village celebrating rural life, and to a 17th century Indian village where everyday life before European arrival is revealed.

The LeMoyne House, located on East Maiden Street, was the first official historic landmark of the Underground Railroad – one of only six in the country. Named for Dr. Francis Julius LeMoyne, whose father built the family home in 1812, the house provided safe haven for slaves en route to Canada – and their freedom -- during the Civil War era.

A physician and inventor, Dr. LeMoyne is also credited with establishing the first crematorium in the U.S. Today, his home (complete with period artifacts) is open to visitors and houses the Washington County Historical Society.

The City of Washington

Bicentennial 1810-2010

In 1781, Washington County became the first county in the U.S. to be named in honor of General George Washington. Nearly three decades later -February 13, 1810 to be precise – the City of Washington was officially incorporated. This year, the city plans to celebrate its bicentennial in style.

16,000 Years All in One Day History & Heritage

National Road Traveling the 600-plus-mile highway (Pennsylvania boasts 90 of those miles) that is the National Road is like taking a trip down memory lane – literally. The first thoroughfare built entirely with Federal funds, Route 40 (as it is known in some parts) began to take shape in 1811 in Cumberland, Maryland. Paralleling the military road forged by George Washington and General Edward Braddock in the mid 1700s, it traverses through Washington County and then into West Virginia, Ohio and Indiana. But when the money stopped flowing in the 1830s, so did construction. The National Road’s journey ends in Vandalia, Illinois. First used by pioneers in Conestoga wagons and then by families in station wagons, the National Road was designed to accommodate travelers. To that end, stone and brick taverns lined its path. Some of those original structures still stand, like Scenery Hill’s Century Inn, while others have been refashioned as private homes, restaurants and stores. The National Road itself was designated a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1976. At the urging of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, statues commemorating the spirit of pioneer mothers were dedicated along the road in the late 1920s. These Madonnas of the Trail sculptures stand larger than life and show a woman holding a baby in one hand and clasping a rifle in the other. Washington County’s Madonna can be found in Beallsville.

History & Heritage

Pennsylvania Trolley Museum

10

Back in 1949, three forward-looking streetcar enthusiasts decided the time was right to lay down the track for the creation of the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum. Nearly six decades later, the facility is now the largest trolley museum in the state. Its education center features authentic tokens, tickets and schedules, period advertisements, photos and dioramas. Its 4-mile (round trip) track takes visitors for rides on beautifully and meticulously restored trolley cars (the museum’s volunteers do most of the work themselves). And its huge -- 28,000-square-foot -- display building highlights 30 different trolleys. Each car has its own story to tell, several have been around the block enough times to have achieved iconic (or at least near iconic) status. For example, there’s New Orleans Car #832, aka the Streetcar Named Desire; there’s Pittsburgh Railways #1711, the last car to carry passengers from Washington, PA to Pittsburgh in 1953; and there’s Philadelphia Rapid Transit’s #5326, the star of a memorable episode of Mister

Rogers’ Neighborhood.

California Founded in 1849, the borough was named for the territory of California following the Gold Rush. Visitors are invited to learn more about its history at the California Area Historical Society, located in the early 20th century style Gallagher House. This home was built in 1895 and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Incidentally, the annual community event -- Gold Rush Days -- takes place in August. Charleroi In the early 1900s, Charleroi was a hotbed of unrest. From his Fallowfield Avenue print shop, internationally known Franco-American anarchist and co-Mason initiator Louis Goaziou was writing and editing the paper L’Union des Travailleurs (aka The Workers’ Union). More than a century later, the Charleroi Area Historical Society is looking to transform the old print shop into a new museum. Donora In October 1948, smog literally suffocated the Monongahela River town of Donora, resulting in the hospitalization of more than 7,000 people and the deaths of 20. Today, the Donora Smog Museum stands as a reminder that “Clean Air Started Here”. One particular Donora neighborhood is dotted with homes made out of poured concrete and is known as Cement City. Although built on Thomas Edison’s idea that cement homes would stand up to fire and termites, construction of these Prairie-style houses proved to be too expensive and repairs nearly impossible to make. Today, Cement City is listed on the Register of National Historic Places.

Jefferson Township In 1853, Jefferson Township was formed out of the western portion of Cross Creek Township in northwest Washington County. During the past 20 years, the Jefferson Township Historical Society has restored two structures -- Heritage Hall and the White Church. Both are used as meeting places and are open during the Christmas in the Village craft festival every November. More recently, the Society erected a Veterans Memorial engraved with the names of more than 1,100 service men and women. www.VisitWashingtonCountyPA.com


The David Bradford House

known as the Whiskey Rebellion. In response, President George Washington sent General “Light Horse” Harry Lee, along with 13,000 other troops, to quash the uprising.

Don’t be fooled by Washington, PA’s tranquil countryside. The streets, specifically South Main Street, were once the focal point of political unrest.

Bradford’s house, built in 1788, not only reflected its owner’s high social standing but came to symbolize the rebellion. Today, the Bradford House’s beauty and heritage are preserved for visitors to experience. In fact, rebels at heart may take home an authentic replica of a Whiskey Rebellion flag.

In the late 18th century, Washington County Attorney General David Bradford led mobs in protest of high federal taxes in what would become
