100th Anniversary of the Great Castle Shannon Bank Robbery

Tuesday, October 10th
7:00 PM

Retired KOSD History Teacher Edd Hale will be at the Library to discuss the bank robbery. On May 14, 1917, the sleepy mining hamlet of Castle Shannon erupted in violence as four desperadoes robbed the town's only bank and found themselves caught in a Wild West-style shootout with the townspeople. Hear how this holdup was planned, executed, and partly foiled as we look at one of Pittsburgh's most notorious crime. Based on extensive research of court documents, period newspapers, and even an eyewitness interview, this almost unknown story rivals other well-known tales of the Daltons, Youngers, and James Brothers.
