Ford City

4"X6" Marker on paper

Some of the games that the boys played in Pennsylvania last month were in Ford City. Actually, I think that the park was in "Ford Cliff" which overlooks Ford City, because this was the view from the park. According to Wikipedia:

Ford City is a borough in Armstrong County Pennsylvania, United States 40 miles (64 km) northeast of Pittsburgh along the east bank of the Allegheny River. It was founded in 1887 as a company town by the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company. The town was named in honor of the company founder, John Baptiste Ford. PPG shut down its Ford City operations in the 1990s. The population was 3,451 at the 2000 census. This is quite an impressive church (cathedral?) for a town of 3,451!
