I thought I knew most of Braddock but I never heard of the area you are talking about. Where is it in relationship to the High School or the old Administrative Bldg. (that is now a private home)?
On another subject but related, a few years back my U-18 soccer team was playing a tournament in Virginia. To my surprise one of our games we were playing a team called Braddock Road. After the game I met several parents and found out there is a town in Virginia called Braddock Road. I have no clue how it got its name.
I wasn't talking about Braddock, although maybe that's mentioned in the article too.
I'm talking about the portion of Braddock Road that passes through Mount Pleasant in Westmoreland County (close to Greensburg and New Stanton... that area) That's the little town my family is originally from, before we moved to the 'Burgh when I was 4-years-old.
It's basicly the original path that General Braddock blazed through the woods when George Washington was just a young surveyor, and they built Fort Necessity an at... LOL! I know I just butchered the history, but you know what I mean.
