You have read the Welcome
page and you have seen the question,
"Where in the world
is Lemont Furnace, Pennsylvania?"
A stranger may not know or may not even
care, but to those of us who were born there, or lived there, or visited family there the
question needs no answer. Lemont is home. Lemont is family. Our roots
lie buried deeply in Lemont.
A stranger may not pronounce it
correctly. You may have heard someone call it "LaMont"? We
know that the correct pronunciation is "Lee'-Mont".
You can find Lemont on a map just a little
northeast of Uniontown. Everybody knows about Uniontown. But you may not be
able to find anything about Lemont in an atlas or encyclopedia, or anyplace else on the
internet. The best you will do is find one place named Lemont somewhere near Penn
State and another Lemont in Illinois, but neither one is our Lemont Furnace.
