Historical Monroeville

Historical MonroevilleIn the late 1700s what was to become Monroeville was nothing more than a few scattered farms. In the more than 200 years that have passed, Monroeville has become a thriving suburban center of commerce and home to some 30,000 residents. The Monroeville Historical Society maintains several sites that provide visitors with a glimpse of simpler times and a rich history of the area including The Old Stone Church, The McGinley House, and The McCully Log House. You can even tour an educational coal mine and museum — Tour Ed Mine — in nearby Tarentum to see one of the main jobs of our first residents.
