Soldiers, champions and innovators have all hailed from this buzzing borough on the banks of the Schuylkill River. Founded in 1761 as Pottsgrove, the small country town was transformed into a thriving industrial center with the coming of the P&R Railroad. Local historian Michael T. Snyder brings together a collection of vignettes to chronicle this fascinating history. From tales of gallant Civil War colonel John Rutter Brooke and the dedicated Dr. Alice Sheppard to memories of summer baseball games long past and a community united in the aftermath of Hurricane Agnes, Snyder deftly captures the spirit and history of Pottstown.
