May 9, 2019 – What do silk mills, brickyards, cigar manufacturing, baseball stitching, farming, the railroad, and a trolley all have in common? They are part of the unique and colorful history of Perkasie, Pennsylvania dating back to the 1800s. News of the day included everything from who came to dinner on Friday night to the recent developments of local businesses.
In an effort to preserve this valuable history, the Perkasie Historical Society hired Backstage Library Works to microfilm the fragile newspapers. Backstage microfilmed The Central News publications dating from 1881 to 1943, and the News-Herald issues dating from 1943 to 2000.
Perkasie news has been an asset to residents and visitors alike. Watch the fascinating report by Hayden Mitman, Bucks County Reporter for PBS39 News Tonight as he interviews Louise Doll, Vice President of the Perkasie Historical Society, and Richard Doll, Co-Curator of the Perkasie Historical Society.
