History & History Related Items

McKees Rocks history:

The Shawnee Indians and then the Delaware were the original inhabitants of the area. Colonel Alexander McKee came in 1769 and lived here for many years. He left quickly after some questionable dealings. One of his descendents, James McKee, took over the land. McKees Rocks finally became a borough in 1892. The area attracted many immigrants who came to work in the many factories and industries of the Pittsburgh area. The area was hurt greatly by the depression when many factories had to close their doors, leaving hundreds without work. Government programs were brought in to aid the populace and things were looking up. But...on On March 17, 1936, a larger than normal flood occurred which resulted in some loss of life and the loss of over 1,000 homes.
