From unsolved murders and ghastly disasters to medicinal water and sports legends, Northwestern Pennsylvania has a rich and diverse history. Titusville native John Heisman shaped football into the recognizable sport that it is today, and his namesake is honored on the Heisman Trophy. Girard's Charlotte and Libbie Battles broke glass ceilings by becoming early female titans of business and banking in the region. Marx Toys in Erie County found success in crafting affordable popular toys for the masses and became the largest toy company in the world. The horrific Ashtabula train disaster of 1876 was the worst train incident in history to that point, with more than ninety lives lost. Join author Jessica Hilburn as she reveals the shrouded history of Northwestern Pennsylvania.
