As a salute to all Upper St. Clair Veterans, present and past, the Historical Society of Upper St. Clair has partnered with the Township to share a patriotic piece of history from our archives. The current display has a World War II theme and includes letters from soldiers, newspaper clippings, and numerous photographs. Also on display are tokens and ration stamps as a reminder of one of the many ways WWII affected those back home. The photographs and several of the newspaper clippings are from an incredible scrapbook created by Emma Hoffman, a teacher at the McMillen School. The scrapbook reveals this period as seen through a local woman's eyes and provides us a record of Upper St. Clair's brave men and women who served their country so many years ago.
