About Monroeville, PA / Additional Info

Monroeville's rise to its current flourishing suburb status is built upon its early days. It was first founded as Patton Township in 1769; then, after serving as a major stagecoach stop, Monroeville graduated from small village status when it experienced a boom in cool mining, an early indicator of its current industrial strength. It was incorporated as a borough in 1951.

Many of Monroeville's nearby attractions celebrate the region's history. West Mifflin's Kennywood Park, a national and state historic landmark founded in 1898, is a traditional amusement park that is still in operation. The park is home to several classic rides, including a merry-go-round and paddle boats, as well as roller coasters and thrill rides (including the 251-foot-tall Pitt Fall). Monroeville visitors frequent Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece, Fallingwater, in celebration of the region's rich architectural history. Built over a 30-foot waterfall, the 1939-built house incorporates its surrounding natural landscape through such features as terraces, open-air walkways and exterior rooms.

Speaking of the natural landscape, the Monroeville region is also home to the National Aviary. Located in Pittsburgh, the aviary is home to more than 600 birds – ranging from hummingbirds to Andean Condors – representing 475 species.

Also just minutes from Monroeville, the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium are home to more than 4,000 animals, as well as 22 threatened or endangered species.
