The 100 year old ‘company town’ of Presston is located in an isolated corner of Stowe Township. There is only one way in and one way out. It is situated beyond an industrial area about two miles from the McKees Rocks Bridge. The community was filled with charming and well kept homes and people proud of their very tight knit historical community. When the row houses are situated 14 inches apart in some places it is difficult to not know your neighbors. Presston was the site of the 1909 McKees Rocks Strike in which 12 people died and several workers were evicted from their homes.
