Monday, June 20, 1904

On this date in Rock Springs Park History, The Daily Tribune, Beaver Falls, PA reported on the inagural run of The Rock Springs Special - an evening trolley excursion during the workweek to Rock Springs Park “so that the townspeople in the Beaver Valley area could enjoy the cool, life-giving, ozone-laden breezes from the pine-clad mountains of West Virginia.” Read the full account at http://rockspringspark.blogspot.com/2011/06/good-for-what-ails-you.html.
