Frackville, Pennsylvania, located in Schuylkill County, was chartered in 1876. A group of residents from Frackville and Mountain City had each petitioned to become a borough. The Grand Jury decided that the two areas should consolidate and become the borough of Frackville. After several requests for a second volume of historic Frackville images, local historian Lorraine Stanton has continued the story of this residential town. It chronicles once-thriving businesses, community celebrations, and leaders and members of church groups and clubs. Along with borough officers, mayors, postmasters, and Civil War Veterans, unknown historical facts are also featured within these pages.
