Duquesne Croatians — Nick Lee Hollow

Nick Lee 03 for postDuquesne Croatians — Nick Lee Hollow:  Nick Lee Hollow was more than a place our parents played as children.  At one time the hollow was home to many Duquesne families.  A few people inquired about Nick Lee Hollow, and as  result I did a little research on the subject.  Read my latest article, Remembering Nick Lee Hollow.

  2. Audrey, thanks for your comment! Do you happen to have any memories about when the name of Oliver Hollow changed to Nick Lee Hollow? Or any remembrances about other places or people in Duquesne’s heyday? Any family stories to share? I love to hear first hand accounts about the area. Thanks for sharing.
