An update: “Zak” has kindly left a comment telling us that this house burned in 1913; it would have been on the Pittsburgh side of the river opposite where the Waterfront is now. Follow the link in Zak’s comment to see another good picture of the relocation project.
From the Booklovers Magazine in 1904. Can anyone identify this house or its exact location? The text below is all Father Pitt has to go on, which tells us that it is somewhere in the Mon Valley near Pittsburgh, but not exactly where. We do not know, for example, whether “about ten miles from Pittsburgh” means ten miles along the river or ten miles as the crow flies. Ten miles along the river would put the house in Homestead or thereabouts.
