Union County, Pennsylvania

A Celebration of History

Charles McCool Snyder, John W. Downie, and Lois Kalp

This updated and revised book covers the gamut of Union County's history. It begins with the region's earliest days when the Delaware Indians were in residence and how the arrival of settlers, who ventured into this frontier area from Berks and Lancaster counties, marked the beginning of major changes. Synder's text, first published in 1976, has been expanded and updated to reflect newly discovered material on such groups as the Amish and the developments in Union County up to 2000.
