William Findley
Dedicated: Friday, October 28, 1994
County: Westmoreland
Marker Type: Roadside
GIS Coordinates: 40.284504-79.393784

Location: Route 981 near Rt. 30, just SW of Latrobe

Marker Text: Near the western end of Latrobe was the log house of this antifederalist Congressman, who lived modestly alongside his constituents. A shaper of public opinion in western Pennsylvania, he sympathized with the Whiskey Rebellion but, as tempers mounted in late 1794, he worked to defuse violence. Findley's book on the Rebellion, written in 1796, rebutted Treasury Secretary Hamilton's analysis of its origins.
