CRAFTON LOCAL HISTORY
A DIGITAL COLLECTION OF CRAFTON PUBLIC LIBRARY
Crafton Public Library is proud to present our digital local history collection made up of a portion of the archives of the former Crafton Historical Society. The collection was left to the Library upon the Historical Society’s disbandment.
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
The Crafton Public Library collection in its entirety contains photographs and documents pertaining to people, places, and businesses in Crafton; Crafton’s original land deeds dating back to the late 1800s; print records of the Crafton Borough Council from the late 1800s onwards; maps and estate plans of Crafton and contiguous boroughs; and three dimensional objects such as street signs and clothing.
In partnership with the University of Pittsburgh's Historic Pittsburgh
and the Crafton-Ingram Rotary, Crafton Public Library has begun to digitize a portion of our local history collection to increase access and browsability. The digital collection consists of photographs and documents which illustrate the rich history of Crafton and surrounding areas.
