Images of America: Susquehanna County, by the Susquehanna County Historical Society. The wild land of Susquehanna County, traversed but not inhabited by the Lenape tribe, was first settled after the Revolutionary War, mostly by veterans in search of affordable land and willing to pioneer. Their families built homes, churches, and businesses and formed thriving agricultural communities, taking advantage of natural resources like timber and bluestone. Rolling hills, clear lakes, and mountain streams form a scenic and peaceful backdrop, attractive to visitors. From the mountaintops, small communities can be seen in the valleys, their white church spires rising above the trees. Influenced by emigrants from New England, the larger towns replicate the neat white houses and shady tree-lined streets of the Northeast.

The Susquehanna County Historical Society has selected some of its most distinctive images to illustrate a story of time and place. The narratives have been provided by the staff and friends of the society. Susquehanna County is a photographic journey celebrating the county's bicentennial, as well as its residents who lived in the pioneer spirit. 127 pages.
