Efforts are underway in Monongahela, Washington County to renovate a landmark home built in 1872, as a permanent site for the town’s historical society. Once owned by a riverboat captain, the house and its neighborhood have a fascinating history that includes a connection to the Underground Railroad. There's much to be done, but a dedicated team is determined to restore The Longwell House to its former glory.
