- Saturday, May 29, 3:00 to 4:30 p.m.
- Meet at the Clock on Washington Road at the stair entrance to the “T,” across from Aladdin’s Eatery (630 Washington Road). Ride the T, ride your bike, or take the bus to Mt. Lebanon!

- The free tour is limited to the first 25 people who RSVP by May 27.
Tour highlights: Karen Cahall, Louise Sturgess, and LuAnn Abelson of PHLF––all Mt. Lebanon residents and members of The Historical Society of Mount Lebanon––will share information about significant events and current developments along Washington Road. We’ll go inside Southminster Church to see the beautiful stained glass windows and climb up the bell tower to see the change-ringing bells; we’ll tour the recently-renovated Municipal Building of 1929; and visit several main street businesses. Mt. Lebanon was incorporated as a township in 1912, but the history of the South Hills community stretches back to the 1770s.
