Since its formation in 1855, Snyder County has played many important roles. It was a key link in the nation's first mass-transit system, the Pennsylvania Canal; the home of the commonwealth's last three-term governor, Simon Snyder; and the seat of one of the nation's oldest coeducational colleges, Susquehanna University. Snyder County explores this area's rich history through beautiful photographs, many of which were culled from treasured family albums. While this volume commemorates more than one hundred fifty years of history, particular attention is paid to the period from 1860 to 1960 through two hundred original photographs, many of which are published here for the first time.
