North Chapel

Pittsburg County

Larry J. Hoefling

North of the thick pine and oak forests of the Ouachitas Mountains, in the foothills beyond the Kiamichi and the Winding Stair Mountains, two trails crossed in the rolling valley nestled between the Shawnee Hills and the Sans Bois Mountains. In the early 1800s, that valley became the home of the Mississippi Choctaw tribe, part of the U.S.-designated Indian Territory. When the railroad boom of the late 1800s occurred, the tracks followed the same cattle trails and pioneer roads, creating a transportation hub at the point where rail lines intersected, a place that later became the county seat of Pittsburg County.

Pittsburg, KS (IMG) (Images of America)

Randy Roberts

Pittsburg was purposely located in the center of the Cherokee-Crawford coal field of southeastern Kansas in 1876. The city’s founders intended for the new mining camp to serve as a convenient shipping point for the tons of bituminous coal that would be extracted from the region. Little did the founders anticipate how quickly Pittsburg would become the dominant city in the rapidly industrialized southeastern corner of Kansas and one of the most populous cities in the state. Immigrants from over 50 ethnic groups came to Pittsburg to provide the necessary labor for the deep-shaft coal mines, the railroads, and many other industries. Pittsburg State University, established in 1903 as a manual training school, is one of the most significant features of modern-day Pittsburg and is widely recognized for excellence in academics and athletics.

Pittsburg (CA) (Images of America)

Marti Aiello

Situated at the far reaches of the Bay Area, Pittsburg has long been perceived as a commuter town, an out-of-the-way bedroom community. Yet this city has a rich and varied history stretching back to the early days of statehood and has played an important role in commerce, both to the state and to the Bay Area. Before long the burgeoning city had a fishing industry rivaling that of San Francisco's famed Fisherman's Wharf and a largely Italian fishing community. By the 1900s, a surprising number of industries set up factories along the waterfront property of Pittsburg. In 1942, the beginning of World War II brought the building of Camp Stoneman, an important departure point for many servicemen. Later, the city became known as a residential destination. Readers of this book will surely see Pittsburg in a new light as they enjoy the surprising and varied tales of the city's previous generations.

New Hampshire's Connecticut Lakes Region (NH) (Images of America)

Donna Jordan

The Connecticut Lakes region is the last great frontier of the North Country. Forming the extreme northern tip of the state, it offers the only port of entry from Canada into New Hampshire. It includes Pittsburg, the most sizable township in the country-three hundred thousand acres in all-and the beautiful and wild Connecticut Lakes. Its fascinating history glistens in the two-hundred-plus images of New Hampshire's Connecticut Lakes Region. Pictured are rich logging lands, a mecca for sportsmen for more than a hundred years, and waterfront camps, cabins, and lodges. From 1832 to 1836, Pittsburg was known as the Indian Stream Republic, maintaining independence from both the United States and Canada.

Pittsburg, Shawmut & Northern Railroad (Images of Rail)

Ken Clark

The Pittsburg (no "h"), Shawmut & Northern Railroad was described by locals as a railroad that "started nowhere and ended no place, with a lot of nothing in between," although it actually linked the coal mines of Elk County, Pennsylvania, with markets in Cattaraugus, Allegany, and Steuben Counties in central and western New York State. Always an underdog, the Class I line went into bankruptcy a mere five years after its corporate birth, holding the record for the longest receivership of any American railroad at 42 years. Always starved for cash, it limped along with outdated and tired equipment, yet it never failed to meet its payroll. It was scrapped completely in 1947.

Baja Pittsburg(h): Vol. 1

Bruce Rising

For the last half century, life has changed rapidly in America, and this is not just about a technology shift the talking heads have been sermonizing about for decades. Not test scores. Not exactly obesity. No, this is America that was once first in steel, nuclear power, and education downshifting to become first in imports, financial engineering, colorful slide presentations, and spreadsheets. Here’s the first part of a recollection of things gone right and wrong, an expose from a period when America could routinely nuke places around the world with virtual impunity, to an era where we fear that our cars are warming the planet, or that a single pipeline from Canada might unleash global havoc. This volume is part odyssey, part observation. Later, a bumpy ride of where some of the blame belongs for what went wrong, and why it could (I hope) all turn out right in the end. Not so much a “How-To”, more like a map of “How-Not-To”.
