Bentleysville

Bentleysville was a rural community of three hundred persons in southwestern Pennsylvania in 1868.

Its history is short because as a country village it existed less than a century. The events are substantially in chronological order, beginning with the settlers over the mountains in 1750 and ending after the Centennial in 1916.
