West Mifflin PA:  Michael Stewart riding the Merry-Go-Round at Kennywood Park - 1956.  The Stewart and Panneton families visited Kennywood during the fall of 1956.  Kennywood Park is one of the oldest amusement parks in America, founded in 1898. Kennywood Park was a big part of our childhood in the Pittsburgh area. At the end of each school year, most school districts had a Kennywood Park Day.  The rides included the roller coasters; Jackrabbit, Racer and Thunderbolt along the infamous Old Mill where you could steal a kiss or two.  Kennywood was designated a National Historic Landmark since 1987
