“Liberty, the Mysterious Township”
Tom Powers and Jim Wudarczyk from the Lawrenceville Historical Society explore a short-lived Allegheny County municipality that existed only between 1864 and 1868. Liberty Township comprised part or all of today's Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Bloomfield, Friendship, Point Breeze, Regent Square, Shadyside and Squirrel Hill, and contained the homes of such eminent Pittsburghers as William Frew of Standard Oil, Robert Pitcairn, U. S. Senator William Wilkins and Andrew Carnegie, among others.
The East Liberty Valley Historical Society announces the return of its Marilyn Evert Memorial Lecture Series with a new day and location. All talks will be held at 7 p.m. in the Parish Hall of Calvary Episcopal Church, 315 Shady Avenue, 15206. Admission is free and masks are required.
