Legends, historical mysteries and fascinating facts have long fascinated John Schalcosky, who took it upon himself to investigate and record an in-depth knowledge of a history of Pittsburgh that is rarely told. In this lecture, John will discuss aspects of Pittsburgh’s past, narrating the story of Pittsburgh through quirky and unusual stories to show how the past helps us understand the present city.

About the Presenter: John Schalcosky is the founder of the “Odd, Mysterious & Fascinating History of Pittsburgh,” a very popular Facebook Page that explores the most unusual, mysterious and forgotten tales of Western Pennsylvania. He is a frequent speaker at high schools, universities and at public events, and he is often featured in stories and interviews on Pittsburgh history.
