HANNASTOWN

 

A 14 page bound paper written by Ed Hahn was a project of the Westmoreland County Historical Society. This is a study of the founding of Hanna's Town, the first county seat of Westmoreland County and the first one organized west of the Alleghenies. The community lasted some fourteen years only to be all but destroyed by Indians and British rangers on July 13, 1782. The site became farmland for the next 190 years and provided an unprecedented opportunity for archeological investigation of an undisturbed site of a colonial village. For researchers and those interested in early western Pennsylvania history, this is a valuable tool.
