When America was in its formative years, Franklin County was a frontier resting in the heart of the Cumberland Valley. Scots-Irish, German, and other immigrants moved into the area, some settling in Franklin County and others moving on to settle in areas farther west and south. On September 9, 1784, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania established Franklin County as its 14th county. Franklin County has a considerable amount of villages and hamlets close to the main communities of Chambersburg, Greencastle, Mercersburg, Shippensburg, and Waynesboro. From photographs of a railroad tycoon's festive celebration to the Liberty Bell passing through Franklin County or the arrival of the first automobile, Franklin County captures life in these main communities and the surrounding countryside, as well as the people and events that have shaped this area.

Created from a portion of Crawford County in 1837, Franklin County is divided by the Arkansas River into two sections, each with its own county seat: Ozark in the North and Charleston in the South. Northern Franklin County is remote, mysterious, and beautiful, while the southern area enjoys graceful and vastly productive prairie lands. The combination of fertile soil and mild climate in the Ozark Mountains produces fruit, vineyards, precious stones, granite, and forests. Evocative images such as the young girls posing in the Altus schoolyard paint a poignant and revealing picture of everyday life in Franklin County. Coal mining played a large part in the lives of residents, and photographs of soot-covered miners display the hardships of this difficult work. With over two hundred photographs gathered from local collections, this book illustrates the history and culture of Franklin County in vivid detail, with captions that are both entertaining and informative.

In the fall of 1785, the Virginia General Assembly voted to create a new county in the southwestern part of the state. The new county, named after Benjamin Franklin, was formed from parts of Bedford and Henry Counties. In January 1786, the first court in Franklin County convened and the county government was established. Native sons who have risen to national prominence include African American educator Booker T. Washington and the only Confederate commander to lead an attack on Washington, DC, during the Civil War, Gen. Jubal A. Early. With an area of 712 square miles, the county includes the communities of Ferrum, Endicott, Sontag, Glade Hill, Snow Creek, Henry, Penhook, Union Hall, Burnt Chimney, Callaway, Wirtz, Redwood, Scruggs, Sydnorsville, and the town of Boones Mill. The county seat of Rocky Mount was incorporated after Rocky Mount and another village, Mount Pleasant, combined in 1873. Having acquired the title of the "Moonshine Capital of the World" during Prohibition, Franklin County is also the eastern anchor of Virginia's music heritage trail, "the Crooked Road."

When the tornado roared across southern Missouri, southern Illinois, and southwestern Indiana for many hours during the afternoon on March 18th in 1925, there was now way that people along the tornado path would know it was occurring before they could see it. This was because there was no radar systems then and the National Weather Service was not able to let people know that a tornado was going to occur or that there was a tornado already occurring since they did not know much about tornadoes. So, the only way a person then was able to know that a tornado was occurring and it was going to hit them was when they were able to see it close to where they were and realize that it was a tornado. This story shows in Franklin, Hamilton, and White Counties in Illinois what some people saw and what they did, and what happened to them when the tornado hit them. This story also has many detailed maps across the townships in Franklin, Hamilton, and White Counties in Illinois that show where many peoples homes, many schools and churches, and other things were located when they were hit by the tornado and damaged or destroyed. Some of the maps also show where some people landed after they were blown well away from there home. There are also some pictures in this story that shows what some homes, schools and other things looked like when they were damaged or damaged by the tornado. And a few of them show what they looked like before they were hit by the tornado. Some of the eyewitnesses of this tornado that I net with and went on driving surveys with are shown on pictures in this book.

This innovative study draws on anthropology, archaeology, art history, folklore, and history to illuminate the rich texture of a historic landscape and the complex process by which it changed over a ninety-year period between the American Revolution and the Civil War. Focusing on Franklin County in the upper Connecticut Valley of Massachusetts, a landscape that shares many characteristics with greater New England and with the rural North, Garrison describes the region's town plans, agricultural patterns, dwellings, barns, outbuildings, fences, and transportation networks--and how they changed. He demonstrates that the transformation of this rural landscape was a dynamic process, a complex interaction between tradition and innovation, driven by people's shifting expectations about material life. Garrison's carefully researched, narrative study begins with the lives of individual inhabitants and from them generates a larger picture. Who lived in Franklin County, what they thought and wrote about, what choices they made and what principles they lived by, what buildings and crops they raised and with what tools and methods, how they organized their homes, family life, farms, and workspaces, what they did with their leisure time, how they spent their money or manifested their social status--these are the topics of his investigation. His study provides insight into the changing values that accompanied the transition from an agrarian to an industrial society and raises questions about the nature of tradition and the character of American "folklife." The Author: J. Ritchie Garrison is associate director of the Museum Studies Program and assistant professor of history at the University of Delaware.
