Event Details

The Wallenpaupack Historical Society hosts Bernadine Lennon, local author and historian, on Thursday, July 18 at noon at the Brookfield Environmental Center, Lambert Road, Hawley.

Bernadine will set the record straight on the origin of the name of Pike County…and it was not named for the fish. Following the noon pot luck luncheon, she will introduce you to the man who got Pennsylvania farmers “out of the mud” during the Depression. You’ll learn of the nationally known writer of Western genre who helped shape the myths of the Old West; the major league baseball player who “threw smoke” due to his blazing fastball and many other Pike County residents who rose to national prominence.
