These posts, broken into parts, take a light, but complete look at various aspects of the past.
Topics include: the craziness of the McKees Rocks Indian Mound; the wild and wooly Indian village of Logstown; Pittsburgh when a New Yorker described it as “Hell with the lid off;” the Forrest Gump character who introduced Pittsburgh to the telephone and the word “hello,” and the woman industrialist who lined rivers with bales of pot.
