TRAVEL TUESDAY…..PENNSYLVANIA’S PAST


SOME OF MY FAVORITE PLACES ARE IN PENNSYLVANIA, ESPECIALLY THE WESTERN PART, BUTLER, MERCER, LAWRENCE, VENANGO AND CRAWFORD COUNTIES.

IN THE COLLAGE, WE HAVE FRANKLIN HIGH SCHOOL, THE EGBERT MEMORIAL FOUNTAIN IN THE PARK DOWNTOWN, FRANKLIN US POST OFFICE, THE TWIN TOWER COURT HOUSE AND THE SOLDIERS MONUMENT. ALL OF THESE ARE IN FRANKLIN, PENNSYLVANIA.

THE FRANKLIN CLUB WAS BUILT IN 1887 AS A PRIVATE RESIDENCE BY RICHARD TERRELL. IT LATER CHANGED TO A MEETING PLACE FOR SOCIAL ACTIVITIES. MY MOTHER, WHILE IN HIGH SCHOOL, USED TO SET THE PINS AT THE DOWNSTAIRS BOWLING ALLEY. SHE ATTENDED FRANKLIN HIGH SCHOOL.
