Places to Stay
The Connellsville Area Historical Society maintains several locations. The first is the Crawford Cabin site at 7th Street and the Youghiogheny River next to the Great Allegheny Passage. The cabin is a reproduction of the home of local pioneer, Colonel William Crawford, orginally built in 1767 near to the Braddick's Crossing site in 1755. The Society owns the historic Gibson House at 217 Patterson Avenue. It is a restored iron master's home dating from 1870 and houses several collections of historic documents including the original Connell papers of the city founder, Zachariah Connell, and a fine collection of early Connellsville photographs. The Gibson House is open on Wednesday by appointment only. Call 724-628-5344 for appointments. Our office at the Carnegie Library is available for research. Call for appointments.
