History

In the 1750s, the Seneca Indians lived in the region. Until the late 18th century, American Indian tribes hunted and fished in the general Fox Chapel area. Virginia and Pennsylvania both claimed the territory. The dispute was not resolved until after the Revolutionary War.[1] Today, less than 1% of its population is Native American.

George Washington

It is probable that in December 1753, George Washington, accompanied by Christopher Gist, pushed his way across Fox Chapel land as he came south from Fort LeBoeuf where he had delivered a letter to the French Commander, ordering him, in the name of the Governor of Virginia, to return to Canada.[2]
