"Sewickley" is believed to be an Indian word meaning "Sweet Water." Historians dispute whether Native Americans were referring to the nearby Ohio River as the "sweet water" or syrup derived from the plentiful local maple trees.
Sewickley is home to the largest outdoor memorial honoring the Tuskegee Airmen, the first group of African American pilots to fight in WWII, many of whom came from this area.
