Strohm Cemetery
(circa 17th Century)

On a wooded knoll, in northern Fox Chapel, lies an old pioneer farm cemetery which originally belonged to Mary and Henry (David) Strohm, the first permanent settlers in Indiana Township. At least 80 people are buried here, including Fox Chapel pioneers such as William Hart, Peter Weber, and Thomas and James Powers.

Crofton Nature Reserve

Many  years ago, the Fox Chapel Area Land Trust led and partially funded the successful effort to create a natural reserve and conservation education project on Field Club Road across from the Fox Chapel Area High School in O’Hara Township.

 

Today, the Crofton Nature Reserve continues to thrive with the help of additional benefactors.  The Reserve includes a butterfly and bird sanctuary and a walking trail.
