The fountain at Point State Park uses the water pumped from that: http://www.clpgh.org/exhibit/neighborho ... t_n78.html

I can't imagine how long it took for the rivers and glaciers to form our topography. Just mind boggling to me how it happens.

If you're talking about Kecksburg, that's a great story. The town has a UFO festival in the summer but I've never been to it, haha.

I understand there's a certain admin from the wexford area that's a pretty big legend in some soccer circles but I don't think that's what you were asking. :)

Bumping my old thread as we have a bunch of new posters and I'd love to hear if anyone has other folklore/legends to share. :D

This isn't really a legend or myth, but I find it fascinating

At one time, NASCAR was doing wind tunnel tests in the abandoned tunnels. Not sure if still active or not.
