In 2013 Bolivar celebrated it's 150 year Anniversary. 

Incorporated in 1863, the Westmoreland County Borough, partially surrounded by Fairfield on the Indiana County line, was then a flourishing community.  It consisted mostly of Eastern European and Scottish immigrants who came to work at the Pennsylvania Canal, located along the Conemaugh River.  Later, when the canal was closed, those same people got jobs in the several brickyards that gave Bolivar the name of "brick town."  The 2015-2016  census reflected a population of 465.
