When a community appreciates where it has been...it has better vision of where it is going!  In 1820,  Jeremiah Murray planned and developed the sustainable community of Murrysville in three  livable sectors...urban, suburban and rural.  Going forward in 2020, we all need to remember our roots.  I urge you to support your local history today and for future generations!
