History Night Story- Kane’s First Cemeteries

Last night we brought back Wednesday Night History Night for the first time since the 100 Days of Kane, PA project ended. With Halloween here, we thought it would be fun to check in with the Kane Preservation Society to hear a spooky story about Kane, PA. Wendy Oakes tells a few tales about cemeteries in the area.


Here’s a picture of the first catholic church in Kane that Wendy referenced. It was on Fraley Street where The Kane Bank was built, which is now Woods, Baker & Ross. The cemetery sat behind it.

Hope you enjoyed hearing a story about Kane’s history again! We will be visiting with them once a month, so let us know if there are any stories you’d like to hear.
