Overview

Chambersburg, Pennsylvania (Images of America Series) by Maurice Leonard Marotte III, Janet Kay Pollard, Janet Kay Polland


Generations of people have long been drawn to Chambersburg due to its location. In 1734, Scots-Irish immigrant Benjamin Chambers recognized the vegetation and powerful waters here, and he chose the Connococheague Creek and the Falling Spring as the location for his grain mill. Chambersburg has since served as a focal point of transportation as a result of its location at the crossroads of the historic Lincoln Highway and Route 11. Chambersburg journeys back to witness events such as the devastation of the Confederate burning of 1864, the creation of the majestic square and Memorial Fountain, and circus time at Wolf Lake. This collection of original images captures the times of trains and trolleys, recollects fires and floods, and pays tribute to the people and places that have made Chambersburg a unique and persevering community.
