This Week In History: The Uniontown Motor Club, 1924

This segment features a news item from Fayette County’s past. This week we examine a story from the February 9, 1924 edition of the Morning Herald.

The headline isn’t all that eye-catching: “Annual Meeting of Motor Club Monday Evening.” This was a reference to the Uniontown Motor Club, a relatively new group reorganized from the Automobile Club of Fayette County in May of 1923. Back then they only had 82 members, but over the ensuing year, more than 700 people joined. Clearly something interesting was going on here!
