The Abington's

This is another of our wonderful centennial books.  This book discusses the history of the Abington's starting from the the Viewmont Mall to an area called Leggett's Gap.  The photo above is a state marker for Elder Miller who was a local pioneer and opened the first church and school.

Aerial View of Marywood Campus and O'Neill Highway (1962)

This photograph, from the book Dunmore 1862-1962 in the Celebrating Our Towns collection, shows an aerial view of the Marywood College campus as it was in 1962. Note the cloverleaf at the top of the photo. This is the O'Neill Highway / I-81 interchange which looks almost rural. Now, of course, it is highly commercialized and reconfigured.
