In the archives at the Observer Reporter is a very large folder labeled “Churches.” Unfortunately, that’s almost all the information there is to go on. Many are undated and unlabeled, the only clues being the signs in the photos or a scribble of pencil on the back (as was the case with the Beallsville image). A search in our digital archives turned up the Donora Historical Society image. It’s likely that we do have more images of churches in the Mon Valley. If we can verify them, we will certainly run them in a future issue.
