I was born and raised in PH (Churchill Valley) but have been gone since ’74. I was back this past weekend (November, 2010) to bury my Mom’s ashes at Mt. Hope Cemetery. I took a few photos driving around (memory lane) and thought I’d forward them to you to share with others that have been away for a while. .Sharon (Singleton) Bowling ‘74 sharonlbowling@gmail.com (Click on photo to view actual size)

(Above) This used to be Curtis’ (Garth Curtis ’73) Gulf station – it looks like it has been abandoned for a while. You can see Hebron Presbyterian Church in the background.

(Above right) Looking east on Frankstown near Beulah Rd. and Coal Hollow. The Moo Shoppe used to be on the left and the A&P on the right. Just beyond the CVS was Hebron Elementary and my bus stop for all the years beyond 6th grade.

(Above right) Linton was an Intermediate school (and fairly new) when I attended. You know how some things look smaller than you remembered them? This was not the case when I saw Linton again!

sharon6.jpg

(Above) This used to be the main entrance to Hebron Elementary. All those group school pictures were taken on risers right in this entry!

(Above) This used to be Penn Junior on Duff Road.

(Above) The high school looks the same too!

(Above right) This monument is nice. I couldn’t get a good picture of the football stadium because of all the trees, but I did notice that Roberts Elementary is completed gone now.
