Meadville, Pennsylvania

Meadville is a city in northwestern Pennsylvania and is the county seat of Crawford County. The city was founded in 1788 by David Mead, and became the county seat in 1800. Meadville's population is just under 14,000.

Meadville is the birthplace of the direct primary, which is the process of having registered party members vote for a candidate to run for office, and the process is now used all around the country, including for Presidential elections. It was begun in 1842 by the Democratic Party to nominate county offices. Meadville is also the site of Allegheny College, the second oldest college west of the Allegheny Mountains and the oldest college in continuous existence under the same name west of the Mountains.

Hahaha, love this pic...



lower left corner, looks like what we in Auckland call an "inorganic collection" .

Two questions. Do any of these residential home owners have off street parking - on site garaging?

2, where is everyone ? Were these taken on a Sunday morning or was everyone at a game?
