Once a hub of activity in the Mon Valley, Brownsville's business district has fallen into decline and near abandonment. Over a 12-month period, OnQ visited Brownsville to report on the town's struggle to recover. That one-year of reporting is now highlighted in this special edition of OnQ, including rare historical footage, compelling interviews, and the story of how uncooperative property owners led to intervention from the governor's office.
