Pumpkin Patch Series: A Guide to Schramm’s Farms & Orchards

The fourth, and possibly last, stop on our Farm Tour is Schramm’s Farms & Orchards in Jeannette. Shramm’s has been selling fruits and vegetables in the Pittsburgh area since 1864, but set up shop at their current location in 1981. Schramm’s Farm Market store and the attached Grandma’s Country Oven Bake Shop are open year-round, but I’ve never seen a crowd flock to the farm like the crowd for the Fall Festival, even on the coldest and muddiest weekend of the season so far!

A Guide to the Niña & the Pinta

You’ve heard the rhyme: “In fourteen hundred ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue. He had three ships and left from Spain; He sailed through sunshine, wind and rain.” 

We remember Columbus, we remember the sequence of events, but we often forget the technology that made his voyages possible: the Niña, Pinta, and Santa Maria. The Niña and Pinta Replica team and the Columbus Foundation are trying to bring these pieces of history to light with their traveling museums, which are docked in Station Square until Wednesday, October 10.
