The Witch of the Monongahela
Speaker: Thomas White, Duquesne University archivist and curator of special collections
In the ancient hills and misty hollows of Fayette County, Pennsylvania, generations of locals have passed down stories of a woman with mysterious magical powers. People came from near and far to seek healing and protection through her strange rituals. Some even believed she could fly. Thomas White will separate fact from fiction and recount the history of folk magic and witchcraft in western Pennsylvania.
