Since its first publication in 1976, this guide -  with nearly thirty thousand copies sold - has become the standard book for exploring the twenty-six counties of western Pennsylvania.  Yet in the past fourteen years, many sites have been lost through fire, demolition, or neglect - and many other sites of historical interest have been discovered and documented.  Now Helene Smith and George Swetnam have completely revised the text, updating the capsule histories, the site descriptions, and location directions (including all the new Pennsylvania road numbers), and adding several hundred new entries.

Review:

“The standard for the serious and novice historian who may be interested in the rich history of Western Pennsylvania.”
—Preserving Pennsylvania



"One of the most usable books of its genre . . . lucid and well organized. It is well worth the investment for any weekend traveler interested in the history of Western Pennsylvania."
—Western Pennsylvania Historical Magazine
