DAVID A. GOLDMAN, proprietor of the "Park Hotel" at Ford City, Armstrong Co., Pa., was born in 1874 in Germany, son of Meyer and Anna Goldman.

Mr. Goldman secured his education in the excellent public schools and Koningsberg College in Germany, coming to the United States in 1888. For a time he was at Charlevoi, Pa., going from there to Huntington, W. Va., and then to Kittanning, Pa., arriving in the latter city in 1893. In 1900 he came to ford City, in 1902 building the "Commercial Hotel," a fine brick structure, and also the adjoining buildings, which comprise one of the handsomest business blocks in the place. For about five years Mr. Goldman personally conducted the hotel he had built and opened, but in 1907 he sold, and in 1911 purchased the "Park Hotel," which he is still conducting. This hostelry is located in a three-story brick building, 80 by 60 feet, elegantly furnished and well equipped with all modern conveniences to make it a first-class hotel in every respect. In 1900 Mr. Goldman was engaged in a wholesale liquor business, but disposed of this interest. In 1907 he bought the Heilman distillery in Manor township, which he is now operating. In 1909 Mr. Goldman was appointed justice of the peace, to fill the vacancy left by Justice Nelson, and in 1910 was elected to that office for a term of five years. However, in March, 1911, he resigned. For one year he served as a member of Ford City council.

On Aug. 13, 1897, Mr. Goldman married Anna Grieb, daughter of Lewis Grieb of Kittanning, Pa., and tow children have been born to them, Lewis and Catherine. Mr. Goldman belongs to the order of Eagles at Ford City.
