Join The Sun and the Wilkinsburg Historical Society In Celebrating Wilkinsburg’s 125th Anniversary!

The year 2012 marks a milestone for the Borough of Wilkinsburg, celebrating its 125th anniversary.   After the October, 1887 incorporation of Wilkinsburg as a Borough, changes came rapidly as the rural village became a robust center where people came to live, work, worship, attend school and raise their families. The citizens of Wilkinsburg have understandable pride in their unique community.
During 2012 the Wilkinsburg Historical Society will submit vintage photo images to the Sun.  We hope you enjoy learning about our past. For those who wish to learn more, the Wilkinsburg Historical Society meets on 3rd Monday, March through November, at 7:30 PM in the Wesley Room of the South Avenue United Methodist Church. The public is always welcome and the meetings are free.
