All Routes Lead North
Winter General Membership Meeting & Program
Presented by the Cranberry Township Historical Society with the Cranberry Township Public Library
Please join us for the 2019 CTHS Winter Program on Sunday November 17, 2019 at 2:00 pm in the Council Chambers of the Cranberry Township Municipal Center - 2525 Rochester Road, Cranberry Township, PA 16066.
We had intended to bring you this program in September or October, but due to scheduling issues, we needed to double up in November this year.
The Delaware, Shawnee, and Iroquois Indians in the area developed trails that were so well laid out, the white settlers also used them and subsequently used them for their future travel improvements. First settlers continued to use them as foot travel, and then for wagon routes and ultimately for vehicle travel on roads developed on these trails.
On November 17th, please join Debby Rabold, a local historian, and Amy Steele, Director of the Northland Public Library, for a road trip through northern Allegheny County as it appeared a century ago as “All Routes Lead North”. These routes were key in the settling and development of Cranberry Township.
Through historic photographs, maps and newspaper articles, learn about the important role the Harmony Route and Allegheny County’s early road projects played in the development of Pittsburgh’s northern suburbs. Learn how to access these historic photos, maps and newspaper articles through Northland Public Library’s Local History website.
