Susquehanna County Susquehanna County Historical Society read online review & book description:
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.
