Connellsville was settled as a township in 1793. It was named for Zachariah Connell, a militia captain duting the Revolutionary War. This is also the point where General Edward Braddock crossed the Youghiogheny River en route to attacking the garrison at Fort Duquesne during the French and Indian War (known as the 7 Year War outside North America). Connellsville currently has a population of about 9000 down from a peak of about 14,000. It is situated along US Highway 119, 57 miles Southeast of Pittsburg. The Union Passenger Depot shown here was built in 1913 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Many of the immigrants to Connellsville came from Italy but another large part came from Czechoslovakia and other Eastern European countries. Many of the churches in the area reflect this heritage.
Connellsville has a small but proud Historic District with a few buildings of historic and/or architectural interest, some of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
