Tyrone featured in Westsylvania Magazine

Tyrone residents can see their town featured in the latest issue of Westsylvania Magazine.
The Winter 2005-2006 issue of Westsylvania shares a story of Tyrone’s history, including the railroad, White Cloverine Salve and, of course, Fred Waring.
Anna and Lou Leopold made a trip to Tyrone a year ago, visiting the history museum and then staying to enjoy the Victorian Christmas celebrations that were occurring in downtown Tyrone.
While visiting, the couple gathered information about Tyrone’s history and compiled a story titled, “Tyrone’s Rails to History”, which has been printed in Westsylvania’s current magazine.
The story starts off telling of Tyrone’s beginnings and its connection with the railroad, then goes on to talk of the Railroad Park and the History Museum.
Another item many Tyrone residents will recognize while reading this story is White Cloverine Salve.
The couple tells the story of this salve and how it came to be. The retelling of this familiar story will bring back many memories to a lot of Tyrone natives.
Finally, the Leopolds share stories of one of Tyrone’s most famous residents, Fred Waring.
Several pictures and information about the Tyrone Area Historical Society accompany the article.
The idea of Westsylvania Magazine was born in the 1980s when many historically rooted industries were struggling, such as coal, steel and the railroads.
By 1985, professional historians, archeologist, architectural historians, folklorists, photographers and other professionals began traveling the area, researching, and gathering information in Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Fayette, Fulton, Huntingdon, Indiana, Somerset and Westmoreland counties.
The mission of the magazine is focusing Westsylvania communities on wealth creation opportunities that emerge from effective identification, preservation , presentation, interpretation, and marketing of their diverse cultural and natural heritage.
In order to help promote the magazine and share the story of Tyrone with its residents, Westsylvania Heritage Corporation has provided free copies of the magazine for interested individuals.
Anyone interested in picking up a copy can stop at The Daily Herald office. Several other Tyrone locations also have copies of the magazine available.
