Mountain View Inn

The Mountain View Inn, a Westmoreland County landmark for nearly a century, succumbs to the wrecking ball in late December 2009. It is currently being redeveloped into a strip shopping center by a Pittsburgh developer. The inn has hosted many notable figures throughout the years such as Harrison Ford and Tiger Woods. Its antiquity and historical status has made it a well-known fixture of Unity Township for many years.

Every October, a gathering of zombies fill the halls of the Monroeville Mall in an attempt to break the record for the world's largest gathering of zombies in one location. The Zombie Fest and Walk of the Dead has been held at the mall, original setting for Dawn of the Dead, since 2006.
