Excerpt from The First One Hundred Years of McKeesport: An Historical and Statistical Description of the City From Its Inception Until Its Centennial in 1894

IN undertaking the task of preparing a history of mckeesport the authors were aware of having assumed something not easy of accomplish ment. Much data necessary to a complete history is not procurable, because it does not exist. Other information sought was unobtainable. But the compilers have made an honest endeavor to gather and arrange the following history in its proper chronological order in as complete a form as it is possible at this time to prepare such a work. The history is the result of a laborious gathering of facts from every conceivable source of information both at home and abroad. Data has been tested and subjected to proof wherever it has been possible and the work is offered to the public, though incomplete, and perhaps imperfect as to some of the facts presented, as the most comprehensive history of the Metropolis of the Monongahela that has yet been published. Whatever its imperfections may be, the authors have no apology to offer. As a souvenir of the first century of mckeesport it seeks recognition, and wonderful as the record of the past may seem, the century just dawning will far surpass it. The next century of mckeesport's existence will be far greater, grander and nobler, and the history of the second cycle of one hundred years will record a still greater development.
