Important Announcement for 2017!  Annual historical festival is scheduled for the 3rd Saturday in September...rain or shine! 

Date: Mark your calendar and plan to participate...Saturday, September 16, 2017!  If you were unable to participate in 2016, do plan to participate in 2017!  The event continues to be historical in venue commemorating the local history of Franklin Township, County Westmoreland, Pennsylvania!

 When a community appreciates where it has been...it has better vision in terms of where it is going!  In 1820,  Jeremiah Murray planned and developed the sustainable community of Murrysville in three  livable sectors...urban, suburban and rural.  Going forward in 2017, we all need to remember our roots.  I urge you to support your local history today and for future generations!  Remember, Saturday, September 16, 2017...historical festival event day in Murrysville!
