Colorful slides show the evolution of the art and design of tombstones and memorials, and equally colorful vignettes tell the stories of the notable and interesting Pittsburghers who lie beneath them. Registration is required.

Haunted Roads of Western Pennsylvania with Thomas White

Sunday, October 21 at 2:00 PM

The Cranberry Township Historical Society and Cranberry Public Library are extremely honored to welcome local author, Thomas White. He will discuss the ghostly travelers who forever wander the lonely roads of Western Pennsylvania. A creeping fog rises from Blue Mist Road, and stories of car crashes, lynchings and even strange beasts haunt this isolated stretch outside Pittsburgh. Is it the angry spirit of a jealous husband or a gypsy king who stalks Erie County’s Axe Murder Hollow? Shades of Death Road in Washington County may be host to phantom coal miners killed during a deadly labor dispute. Travel the backcountry roads and byways of Western Pennsylvania to discover ghost tales and mysterious legends.    Registration is required.
