By Vernon Leslie. Although no year can be designated as that which saw the founding of Honesdale, 1827 saw activity that resulted in its establishment. This volume outlines the land acquisitions, describes the site before it was cleared, and tells of the rapid growth of the village originally known as Dyberry Forks. Early industry, craftsmen, commercial and financial enterprises are described in the history on Honesdale before the early 1850's. 124 pages with many black & white photographs.
