The first home opened on Highland Ave in 1916. The second in 1917. The 141 Oakland Ave Home closed in July 1958. Anyone interested please contact the Connellsville Historical society.

Date: 05/06/2008
Message: Thank you for sharing Connelsville history. My Grandmother lived at 604- 8th Street. Many of the postcards she was sent were simply mailed to Sara Rubin, Connelsville with no address and naturally no zip card. I even did an oil painting of a scene that looked like Pittsburgh Street, that was given to the Cadison's of Punxatawny. 55joelsart@comcast.net
