Called the “Gem of the Endless Mountains,” Sullivan County has been a crossroad and ethnic melting pot in the highlands of northern Pennsylvania for more than two centuries. There are villages, ghost towns, family farms, and hunting camps scattered along valley floors and clinging to the mountainsides. Early lumber mills were built along the Big and Little Loyalsock Creeks and tributaries in the early 1800s, and outdoor sports and modern tourism became major industries in the 20th and 21st centuries. Land speculation by companies such as Asylum Land Company led to the development of coal, lumber, and railroad industries throughout the county.

Title: New book explores Sullivan County’s past

Author: Staff Writer

Publisher: Williamsport Sun Gazette

Date: 4/22/09
Called the "Gem of the Endless Mountains," Sullivan County has been a crossroad and ethnic melting pot in the highlands of northern Pennsylvania for more than two centuries.
There are villages, ghost towns, family farms and hunting camps scattered along valley floors and clinging to the mountainsides. Early lumber mills were built along the Big and Little Loyalsock Creeks and tributaries in the early 1800s, and outdoor sports and modern tourism became major industries in the 20th and 21st centuries.
Land speculation by companies such as Asylum Land Company led to the development of coal, lumber and railroad industries throughout the county.
With the help of the Sullivan County Historical Society and Museum, C.J. Hatch has compiled more than 200 vintage photographs in a new pictorial history book. With each page, she helps bring readers down memory lane.
Hatch hopes the book will "draw more residents and tourists into the county's museum, as well as leave the reader with a further appreciation of the county's history and a respect for the ancestors who settled here."
A portion of the book's profits will be donated to the Sullivan County Museum for archival preservation.
The Sullivan County Historical Society and Museum began in 1932 with a mission to preserve the history of Sullivan County and its communities. C. J. Hatch, in conjunction with the historical society, has compiled the vintage photographs in Sullivan County with the help of many county residents.
Hatch, 50, is a transplant from the Heart of Dixie who first visited Sullivan County some 22 years ago. Married to a local "ridgerunner," she learned about a small part of local history through her in-laws, which led in a larger part to interest in the county as a whole.
A college graduate, Hatch's interest in old roads led to researching the old Susquehanna and Tioga Turnpike that ran between Berwick and Elmira, N.Y., a part of which was cut through Sullivan County in the early 1800s.
One of several custodians at the Sullivan County Museum in Laporte, Hatch is actively involved with the local Roving Theater (scripts are based on the county's history) and the Sullivan County Scholarship Association, an organization which provides scholarships for Sullivan County high school seniors.
When not buried in research at the museum, Hatch's other interests include needlework, cleaning, cooking with cast iron cookware, collecting old recipes and books, photography, exploring old roads and railroad beds, writing fiction and poetry, and raising her two children.
Hatch hopes that with the publication of Sullivan County, local area residents and tourists will be drawn more into the county's history and to the museum. She also hopes this book will leave the reader with a further appreciation of the county's history and a respect for the ancestors who settled there.
Hatch will hold a booksigning from 5 to 8 p.m. May 1 at Otto Book Store, 107 W. Fourth St., as part of First Friday events.
The softcover book is 128 pages and retails for $21.99.

Title: Touring Sullivan County's Museum

Author: Staff Writer

Publisher: The Sullivan Review

Date: 4/15/09
We interrupt this program to bring you the following important message:
On April 20 Sullivan County will have its own picture/postcard book available purchase. This work is authored by Connie Hatch and is a culmination of more than a year’s worth of tireless work.
It all began when Connie attended a conference hosted by the PA Historic & Museum Commission wherein vendors for fundraising efforts are also in attendance. The idea was sparked and with the unveiling of so much information within your museum in recent years it seemed an opportune time to put such an effort together.
The book highlights each township and borough within Sullivan County and touches upon a cross section of this county's history unlike any before. After weeding through and narrowing down what is within the museum's compiling&, Connie then went out to you – the readers - for even more photos much more background on those she already had.
As always' seems the case with Sullivan Countians: you rose to the occasion and many people stepped forward to contribute to this book. The publisher, Arcadia Publishing, will have book signing dates set up Connie. But, prior to that, the Sullivan County Historical Society is proud to present Connie’s first book signing at the museum on Sunday, April 26 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Pauline Holcombe Wing of the memorial museum building. (That's located behind the Courthouse on Courthouse Square in Laporte.)
The Sullivan County book is being offered at the museum for $20 (includes tax) and the proceeds from the sale of these books goes towards the much needed preservation materials within YOUR museum. Light refreshments will be available and the main building will be open for you to enjoy also. Please feel free to come and support YOUR museum!
Should you be otherwise occupied, you may call the museum at 570-946-5020 or email us at sullymuseum@chiliteeh.net or just stop in if you see the open sign in the window.
