View of Ligonier, Westmoreland County, P.A., 1900 / drawn & published by T. M. Fowler.

This aero-view print of Ligonier, Pennsylvania was drawn and published by Thaddeus Mortimer Fowler in 1900. Ligonier was first settled along by Europeans in the early 1800s along Loyalhanna Creek. It was named for nearby Fort Ligonier, a stronghold of the French and Indian War. The region had considerable forests and fertile pastures and was located along a popular east to west turnpike. In 1877, the Ligonier Valley Railroad was completed, linking Ligonier with Latrobe. The railway carried lumber and coal out of the valley and tourists in.

In the late 1800's, Ligonier enjoyed hosting visitors from all parts as it began building a resort industry. In 1877, the amusement park ���Idlewild��� opened in Ligonier. By 1900 the park contained a bicycle track that circled Lake Bouquet, gardens, auditoriums, pavilions, a bandstand and a steam carousel.

The map from 1900 indicates labeled streets, buildings and railroad lines.
