Snyder County [Postcard History Series] [PA] [Arcadia Publishing]Category: County Pa PostcardSnyder County was carved out of the southern portion of Union County in 1855. Named after Selinsgrove resident and Pennsylvania's only three-term governor Simon Snyder (1808?1817), the county is unique in many ways. It is part of the extensive early-nineteenth-century Pennsylvania Canal System's Susquehanna Division and home to one of the nation's first coeducational colleges, Susquehanna University. In the western section of the county, McClure is a town that was created by and for the convenience of the mid-nineteenth-century Middle Creek Valley Railroad. Snyder County is a historical tour of these ever-changing communities through more than two hundred new and far-ranging images, many never before published, mainly from the outstanding postcard collection of county resident Ron Nornhold.
