Description


Nestled in the foothills of the Laurel Mountains, the Ligonier Valley is recognized across the nation for its contribution to the country's heritage. Ligonier was incorporated as a borough in 1834, and Latrobe followed soon after in 1854. Over the years the Ligonier Valley has made its mark on American culture, being the birthplace of Rolling Rock beer, golf legend Arnold Palmer, the banana split, and television personality Fred Rogers and home to the five-time Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers' training camp at St. Vincent College. Latrobe and the Ligonier Valley features over 200 vintage postcards detailing the area's homes, churches, schools, industry, and daily life and representing over 100 years of rich local history.
