Save the Evans City Chapel - NOTLD

As I sit here preparing for the second Steelers vs. Ravens class of 2011, I was reminded of the history in this rivalry game (probably the best in all sports). These two teams have played some tremendous games and I hope this one is better than the one from earlier this season. Being home in South Western Pennsylvania to watch the game makes it so much better, because this is truly Steelers country.

However, this area (as many already know) is also the birthplace of modern zombies, seeing the light of day for the first time in the George Romero classic Night of the Living Dead in 1968. As I blogged last month, the chapel at the Evans City Cemetery is in dire need of repair and the Save the Chapel movement has been started to assist in funding and coordinating the repairs to the piece of Horror Cinematic History.  After some time, the organization has got their website up and running, complete with details on the chapel, upcoming events and everything you can imagine concerning this tremendous movement (including some awesome Ebay Auctions that benefit chapel restoration).  Please check out this site at and help save this iconic piece of horror history.
