A Collection of Papers Prepared for the Historical Society of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania - Montgomery County Historical Society. “The objects of a county historical society are to perpetuate a record of important events occurring within the county, or in any way affecting its welfare, and also to preserve the memory of eminent persons who have lived within its borders, or who have advanced its interests.” This volume is a collection of papers and sketches about Montgomery County arranged as a permanent record for “the study and preservation of the county’s history.” Some of these papers and sketches deal with the county itself: Whitemarsh, Norriton Township, Old “Harriton,” Near Bryn Mawr. Others deal with the history of the area: Fries’ Rebellion, A British Capture, Local History. Many deal with the people of the area: Col. Theodore W. Bean, The Story of Lydia Darrah, Women of Montgomery County. All of the papers and sketches are designed to present the facts gathered by careful investigation in order to preserve historical research.
