Hidden History of the Laurel Highlands


History lies almost forgotten among the low mountains and quaint towns of Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands. Tales of Titanic survivors, brilliant inventors and forgotten heroes are all a part of the region’s dim past. Since the 1790s, the highlands have been home to a booming glass industry that spun out early windows and flasks and, later, beautifully cut pieces of art. The wonder of the World’s Fair of 1893 was none other than Westmoreland’s H.C. Frick Coke Co.’s replica of a modern mine. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, lush fields and meadows produced the country’s finest whiskey, Monongahela Rye. Author Cassandra Vivian travels off the beaten path to explore the hidden history of the Laurel Highlands.
