This program is hosted by Boy Scout Troop 344 and includes a hike on the Harmony Trail. First, Bill Fronczek and Scott Becker form the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum will present period photographs and talk about the history of the Harmony Interurban line, the first mass transit system in the North Hills. Next, Amy Steele from the Northland Public Library will talk about the resources available at the library to find pictures and information about local history, followed by a questions and answer period. Finally, the scouts will lead the audience on an approximately 1.5 mile round trip walk on the Harmony Trail which sits on the route of the old trolley and includes the site of the original Wexford Station.
