    I Traveled through Kittanning in 1929 or 30 and rode over US 422 when it was dirt. and crossed an old rickety bridge to travel to Indiana, PA from Grove City,PA. I have been trying to find the bridge or a picture of it with no results? My brother Rev. Richard Buchanan lives near there. I am 84 with a photographic memory. I remember going down a steep hill making a 90 degree turn to an old rusty shaky bridge. We made the trip almost weekly because my great grandma Margorie Hess was in very poor health and died when I was very young. Al Buchanan

    Kittanning Hose Company #3 asked Borough Council for money to purchase an auto truck for their station in 1912 after Hose, Hook and Ladder Company #1. Council agreed to stipen $1,000 each for for each company. The first was awarded to #1, of which they purchased a Lange Auto Truck from Pittsburgh, PA. – Helwig Lange was my great grandfather.
    Also Gruskin’s Department Store was owned by my husband Art’s grandfather, Arthur Gruskin. I have an old ad that I could scan if you’d like to have a copy.

    I’m looking for some information and pictures of Herbert Gates house and any information you may have. My husbands mom and dad owned it and I always wanted to know more about it. I would like to see pictures of the inside an the grounds outside. When they owned it it was divided into apartments. Are there any family members still living? Maybe they have some pictures
