Overview


Mifflinburg and the towns of the West End have a story to tell. The hard work of making a life in early America demanded courage and determination of its settlers. There were good times when the towns thrived and tough times when efforts failed. Fires and accidents destroyed dreams, and financial distress halted progress, but the towns survived, and those that did celebrated their successes with fairs, parades, bands, and church dinners. Mifflinburg's buggy factories shipped buggies and sleighs across the young nation. The timber industry of the West End produced thousands of board feet, which built towns and propped up mines. Images of America: Mifflinburg and the West End tells the unfolding stories of Mifflinburg and the West End towns of Swengel, Millmont, Laurel Park, Pardee, Glen Iron, Weikert, Hartleton, and Laurelton. It is a history full of surprises and wonderful spirit.
