To help Dormont celebrate its centennial, check out the book that chronicles the borough's history from its earliest years to the present. Dormont is a softbound 128-page book, with 207 pictures, that covers the borough's first 100 years in six chapters. Muriel Moreland, president of the Dormont Historical Society, wrote this book. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, "[d]uring her research, Mrs. Moreland said she was surprised by the population and housing boom that came to Dormont after the completion of the Liberty Tunnels in 1924 and the Liberty Bridge in 1928. She said from 1928 to 1938, the borough experienced a 478 percent growth." For more information, visit the Dormont Historical Society website. Happy birthday, Dormont!
