You no doubt saw in last month’s Gazette that the Neighborhood History section of our website is now online! If you have not yet had a chance to visit, take a look at and let us know what you think. For those of you who have contributed house histories, thank you so much for making this resource possible!

There are still opportunities to participate in sharing the story about Allegheny West. Not only are we still happy to receive your house history in either paper or digital format (stop by the council office at 806 Western Ave or email, we would also love to record your own personal story. As part of the 50th anniversary of Allegheny West Civic Council – and the neighborhood as a whole – we are recording short interviews with neighbors both long standing and brand new. If you are interested, contact Nick by emailing today!
