  • Christmas Traditions: O Holy Night at Midnight Mass Probably one of my favorite Christmas songs is “O Holy Night.” One tradition my family had when I was growing up was to celebrate Christmas Eve with family, then attend midnight mass.

  • From Hospital to College Campus: Beaver County Sanatorium The 105 acres of land that now occupies the campus of Penn State Beaver in Center Twp has quite a history. While I was student at the campus, there were many stories and legends about the land and even some of the buildings being haunted. While ghost stories are often passed down from class to class at places of higher education, these stories might have more reason to be somewhat true. The land and buildings that were offered to the University to build the campus was once the home of the Beaver County Tuberculosis Sanatorium.
