Are you from western Pennsylvania? Have you had Red Ribbon Soda? Let me know what it's like. The way that they carbonate their sodas (with dry ice!) intrigues me and I'm trying to decide whether I should spring for their 12-pack. Pls email me if you've tried them.

LINDA – Events Coordinator

Hello everyone! I recently learned about The History Center’s HistoryForge project that is transcribing local censuses into a research-friendly format. If you are curious about who lived in your house in 1900 and 1910, check it out, it's fascinating!
