Notes:
This creekside cabin, which is probably located in Leet Township or Sewickley Heights, is a remnant of the early settlement of the Sewickley Valley prior to the extension of the Pennsylvania Railroad line into the area in 1851. The introduction of the railroad line led to the growth of the Sewickley area as a summer haven for wealthy Pittsburgh industrialists.
