“The Southside Stringdings” are a home-grown Oil City duo with a sound and flavor uniquely their own. Local singer/songwriters Dan Littler and his son Mitch Littler perform original songs and standards that capture the joys of everyday life and those of times past. Dan and Mitch have performed at various venues in the area including Pipeline Alley, Oil Heritage Days, Foxburg, local churches, bluegrass festivals and coffee houses.
Built in 1875, the Emlenton Mill was one of the first steam powered grist mills in the United States. Later converted to gas and then electricity the Mill was in operation for over 100 years. Located in Emlenton, the southern gateway to the Oil Heritage Region, the Mill sat on the scenic Allegheny River, close to the Allegheny River Bike trail. It was located just off I80 at exit 45 on Main street in Emlenton, PA.
On February 5, 2015 the Emlenton Mill burned. Over 200 firefighters from 50 companies fought the fire and we thank them for braving the ice, fire and cold. We loved the Mill and will miss it.
