Originally called Parkinson’s Ferry, then Williamsport, and finally Monongahela City, this town is the oldest settlement in the Monongahela Valley and one of the most historic. Monongahela dates its origin from April 17, 1769 when William Nowland, Peter Froman, and James Linnes purchased tracts of land at the mouth of Pigeon Creek on the Monongahela River, from a land office in Philadelphia on the strength of a 1768 treaty with the Indians.
In 1771, Joseph Parkinson and the DeVore brothers built and operated competing ferries on opposite sides of the Monongahela River: Parkinson’s on the west bank, and DeVore’s on the east bank. Much river traffic occurred in the area. Parkinson recognized the need for a post office and, in 1782, the first and official listing of the town was Parkinson’s Ferry. In 1833, the name was changed to Williamsport, then officially to Monongahela on April 1, 1837. Monongahela is an Indian word for “falling banks”. With such natural beauty why not decide to live her in Monogahela. Howard Hanna Simon Real Estate Services is the top real estate company in Monogahela, PA.
