Set in the endless hills of central Pennsylvania, Tyrone became known as the gateway to the Alleghenies. The Little Juniata River flowed through it, connecting Tyrone to communities in the Logan, Bald Eagle, and Juniata Valleys. Since its founding in 1851, Tyrone's central position also made it known as the "Hub of the Highways." Its advantageous location allowed the Pennsylvania Railroad Company to establish a railroad terminus to bring the riches of coal, iron, grain, and lumber to market. A newfound prosperity was attained, prompting outside investment. Tree-lined promenades and terraced lawns complemented the natural beauty of this community. Through vintage postcards, images, and photographs from famous Tyrone photographer R. K. Bonin, Tyrone chronicles the history of this charming community and the towns and villages that share its valleys.
Jeffrey Adams, a Tyrone native, has collected all of the images for this book over 35 years. As a local historian, he has spent countless hours researching the people of the Juniata region, in particular, those of Tyrone. R. Curt Chinnici has published articles on early-American lighting and on the early marble industry outside of Philadelphia.
The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
