Laurel Valley Area Historical Society (LVAHS) Meeting – Changed

June 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Please note the change in location for this meeting!

The next meeting for the Laurel Valley Area Historical Society will be June 2nd, 2020 at 6 PM at the LAUREL HILL CEMETERY (back Boswell Road in New Florence, towards the State Game Lands).  We will meet at Stuart’s Funeral Home and carpool from there.

There will be a little walking involved so please bring the following:

  1. Walking stick, or cane (if you feel you need one)
  2. Lawn chair that folds and is easy to carry
  3. Bottle of water (if you think you will need it)
  4. Protective face mask

NOTE: This meeting was originally planned for the W. Fairfield Cemetery, with a special interest placed on the Covode grave sites. The reason for the change in plans is because Laurel Hill Cemetery was JUST mowed and cleaned up and we want to take advantage seeing it this way. Doug Hull will give us a mini tour.

Thank you,

Kathy Mack

Original meeting information that will now be in July.

Hopefully, if the coronavirus has subsided, the next meeting of the Laurel Valley Area Historical Society (LVAHS) will be on Tuesday, June 2nd, at 6 p.m. at the West Fairfield Auction Barn. Please park at the barn and then the group will walk over to the cemetery across the street.  We will examine the graves of John and George Covode (and possibly some others).  If the weather is bad that day, we will just hold our regular meeting inside the auction barn.  Be safe everyone!

Before the meeting you might want to read the Wikipedia information available for George Hay Covode (August 19, 1835 – June 25, 1864) who was a Pennsylvania merchant and a colonel of cavalry in the Union Army during the American Civil War.

If you have any questions please contact Kathy Mack at 724-235-2688.  Thank you.
