  • The history of Monroeville is inextricably linked with the history of the roads.

Family Outing on Tilbrook Road

By 1807, the grand-daddy of modern highways, the Northern Turnpike was completed from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh, and Monroeville, at its convenient location 13 miles out of Pittsburgh, became the first stagecoach stop heading east on the new road.

One road: the past and present!

Then

Now

Monroeville was a small village nestled among widely-scattered farms. In what would surely be a sign of things to come, it was a road that gave the emerging village its first taste of prominence.

Critical Thinking Question: (Please respond in your journals:)

Why do you think “a road” is underlined?

What road do you think this is referring to?

assignment
Assignment:
  • Within your project groups, discuss your answers to the critical thinking questions regarding “the roads”
  • What significance does this street sign have to Monroeville, why would I include it in the introduction to Monroeville history?
  • Why do you think “a road” is underlined?
  • What road do you think this is referring to?
  • Within your groups, complete the SEA worksheet on both pictures of the Northern Turnpike. Do these pictures reinforce your answers to the critical thinking questions? If so, how? If not, how do these pictures change your answers?

…..It’s Joel Monroe! Did you guess correctly? What helped your guess?
  • In 1810 the village would develop along the new road, extending east to west. And when a local farmer named Joel Monroe began selling off lots along the road, he was to lay down the core of the modern community that bears his name.

  • 1850 - Joel Monroe and his neighbors petition the federal government for a Post Office for their growing village.
  • 1851 - The post office petition is approved, and Joel Monroe becomes the first Postmaster, with the Post Office located in his home, along what is currently William Penn Highway (US Route 22).

  • The McGinley House is the oldest existing stone house in Monroeville.
  • Historical records show that the land on which the house was built, was originally owned by a Matthew Simpson.  In 1827, the property was deeded to Joseph McClintock. 
  • It was Joseph’s son, John, a farmer and stonemason, who probably built the house around 1830.  In time, the house and farm passed to Mr. Isaac McGinley, from whom the homestead derives its historic name.
