City Keeps Abreast of Air Age

By Willard L. Lewis

The past half century in American history has been marked by introduction of the automobile, radio, television, airplanes. As each came onto the scene, Connellsville was always among the forerunners.

Citizens of this city owned the earliest automobiles; a movement to build them was even launched. Connellsville became an important terminal point for the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad and today there are four other carriers also entering here; a locomotive works once operated on the west shore of the Youghiogheny; when radio arrived this city had its share of "hams" and still does; and now - with air travel growing apace, the Connellsville Airport is in operation. It is one of the finest in the Commonwealth, and probably the best of any municipally owned outside of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

Whatever the future may bring, Connellsville will be there.
