Liverpool 2003 Postcards now available for purchase
We are a group of folks in the Liverpool, Pennsylvania, area who have
informally decided to meet monthly to discuss and learn about our local
heritage. Our first meeting was in June, 2000, in the local Methodist church.
This first get-together was the brainchild of Pat Campbell. About 20 people
attended. A few local artifacts were displayed. The discussion covered much
of local history. The evening was very enjoyable and the group agreed to meet
every month hence on the last Thursday.
It was revealed that there is a Liverpool web site in the works with a history
section. This group will be the primary contributor in the documentation of this
part of the web site to preserve the information gathered for all to enjoy.
There is much work to be done in this endeavor and all are invited to attend the
meetings and contribute knowledge, photos for scanning and stories about the
history of the area. Areas of interest include the canal days, the ferry boats,
area civil war veterans, locally made Shuler guns and Stailey tinware (both sought
after by collectors), famous local folks and local genealogy.
The Liverpool Historians hope to serve as the focal point for years-long scattered
efforts in all these areas of interest so that our heritage will be preserved for
Liverpool was one of the busiest towns along the canal route and a bustling trade
center. Check back often as the History section of the Liverpool web site

Meetings: Last Thursday of the month at the Liverpool Senior Citizens Center
