Captivating and entertaining, this new collection of historic images brings to life the past of Glenshaw, Pennsylvania, focusing on the period between the mid-1800s to the 1940s. With insightful captions and breathtaking images, readers are introduced to many of the early residents who shaped the future of this area of Shaler Township, and we are transported back in time to see early homes and places of work, play, worship, and education. In 1800, John Shaw Sr. purchased 600 acres of land just 8 miles north of the city of Pittsburgh. He built a log sawmill to prepare lumber for his home, and later built a log gristmill which stood until 1845 when his son replacedit with a larger mill. The new mill stood on property across from the local school, and the area became known as "Shaw's Glen. During the period covered in this book, Shaler Township, incorporated in 1837, grew from a quiet milltown of just 2,000 residents to a bustling suburb of the Steel City. Today, over 33,000 people call this area home.
