West Pittston Historical Society is asking for West Pittston residents to help its efforts to preserve and showcase the Garden Village’s history. The society will be sponsoring its inaugural West Pittston History Day from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 23, at the West Pittston Library on Exeter Avenue. Residents are asked to bring old photos, slides, report cards and memorabilia they think will contribute to continuing the legacy of West Pittston’s history. Scanners will be available on site and all photos and items will be returned that day. There is a lot of history in West Pittston buried in people’s homes, so clean out your closets, basements and attics and come and preserve these treasures for future generations. Items from the society’s collection will also be on display. The West Pittston Historical Society welcomes new members. For membership information, email or visit its Facebook page. West Pittston Historical Society will display photos from its archives during West Pittston History Day, including this 1900 photo of the original West Pittston Hose Company building.
