Latrobe and Ligonier Valley, Postcard History Series


by Rachel E. Smith

Ligonier Valley, Pennsylvania

"Nestled in the foothills of western Pennsylvania, the Ligonier Valley has always had an air of mystery about it.  The small towns and rolling countryside bear little witness to all that has occurred here.  A fort was built but decayed and disappeared before being reconstructed recently.  many people have made significant contributions to the town and beyond, although time has lost many of their stories.  The valley became and early industrial center with the growth of lumbering, mining and iron production until the best resources were spent and these industries dwindled.

Using hundreds of rare photographs, author Sally Shirey tells the story of this beautiful, historic area.  In Ligonier Valley, readers can see the valley as it stood many years ago."
