Joseph Makarewicz Milestones Vol. Adjacent to the new plant were two communities, the tiny Borough of Aliquippa, site of a popular amusement park on the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad, and the even smaller village of Woodlawn. In time, the communities were to grow and eventually merge to form the largest borough in Beaver County. But the history of the area in these intervening years was colored by a population factor missing from most of the early communities but common to steel and mining towns - the arrival of many immigrant workers from Southern and Eastern Europe, and of blacks from the impoverished southern states.

The Vajrayana "Thunderbolt Doctrine" school is an Esoteric branch of Mahayana that took root in Tibet, where it continues to the present. Buddhism died out in India around AD, succumbing to Muslim invasions as well as a resurgent Hinduism.
