History Preserved in Perkasie, Pennsylvania

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.  News of the day included everything from who came to dinner on Friday night to the recent developments of local businesses.
