First Ladies of Western Pennsylvania

Submitted by CTHS on October 31, 2018 - 12:29 am

Our last speaker’s program for 2018 is about important women in Western Pennsylvania, thus entitled First Ladies of Western Pennsylvania. For some reason, in current times, an important achievement by women is lauded as a great step for mankind, almost as if they never happen, like Halley’s Comet only occurring every 79 years, but in reality, women have been doing great things every day for 300 years in America and the same for Western PA. While behind the scenes nationally; John Adams and James Madison were mere statesmen without Abigail or Dolley.

Over the Decades at Moraine State Park

Submitted by CTHS on October 21, 2017 - 10:35 am

Exactly 21.5 miles north of Crider’s Corner in Cranberry Township sits a park that is a jewel to anyone who loves the outdoors. The distance to Cranberry Township was perfect to the goal of Maurice Goddard. In 1955, Maurice Goddard was Secretary of the Pennsylvania State Department of Forests and Waters, and his goal was to have a state park within twenty-five miles of every Pennsylvanian citizen. That area is now Moraine State Park, built in the Muddy Creek valley.
