Montgomery locals

By Staff | Apr 10, 2012

The Montgomery Area Historical Society will present The History of the Village of Alvira on Saturday, April 14 from 11 am to 4 pm. The event is held in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, as it is on the Pennsylvania State Game Lands #252, along Alvira Road. In the late winter and early spring of 1942, residents of Alvira and the surrounding area of White Deer Valley were forced to abandon their homes by the United States Government in order to make way for the Pennsylvania Ordnance Works, which manufactured explosives during World War II. An entire community was wiped out. The Historical Society will give guided tours of some of the remaining homes and buildings that existed there. There will be displays, and a video of area history will be shown. The Oak Grove Community Center will also offer food for purchase. Head out this Saturday and learn more about your local community’s involvement in American history.
