9780738510248: Around Blair County (PA) (Images of America)

Blair County is a picturesque area of five hundred thirty square miles, carved from the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains in western Pennsylvania. Its lush forests, fertile valleys, and exquisite vistas attracted settlers as early as the mid-1700s. Its rich supply of minerals-iron, lead, and limestone-prompted the development of furnaces, forges, mills, and quarries; during the nineteenth century, the manufacture of iron was the principal business of the county.Illustrated with more than two hundred images, Around Blair County includes all the charm of the hamlets and towns it highlights: Hollidaysburg, Duncansville, Newry, Tyrone, Bellwood, Claysburg, Roaring Spring, Martinsburg, and Williamsburg. It explains how Duncansville emerged as an antiques mecca, and it celebrates the still preserved Mount Etna iron furnace. It features well-known and lesser-known people from the area, such as steel man Charles Schwab, musician and inventor Fred Waring, and lamplighter Homer Butler.

About the Author:

Educator and historian Sr. Anne Frances Pulling has written seven other histories published by Arcadia, among them Around Cresson and the Alleghenies, Northern Cambria, Punxsutawney, and Altoona. For Around Blair County, she conducted interviews with townspeople, researched local documents and publications, and assembled a striking collection of photographs generously loaned to her by individuals, the Blair County Historical Society, and other sources. The result is a tribute to the past that will enrich and enlighten all who read it.
