NESQUEHONING REMEMBERED
A COLLECTION OF MEMORIES

by
Georgie Pauff

 

Nesquehoning Remembered is a book written by George Pauff and was published by the Nesquehoning Historical Society. It consists of three volumes. Volumes I, II and III obviously do not tell the complete story of Nesquehoning but the three books contain personal recollections and accounts of events. The three volumes provide names of many fellow townspeople to assist the reader to remember the "good old days" and relive many experiences that we may have shared. Our apologies for not mentioning any persons or events that others might have included or errors in the accuracy of the information presented in the books.
