Churches are built in Bath community

Wednesday, April 17, 2019 by ED PANY Curator, Atlas Cement Company Memorial Museum in Columns

Today, I continue my visit to the new Bath Museum, 121 S. Walnut St., and recall the history of a neighboring community, whose roots go back to 1737.

As I wrote in the last column, many of the first settlers were of Scotch-Irish heritage. With the end of the Revolutionary War, many of the early Penn land deeds were in dispute, resulting in many of the early settlers moving to western Pennsylvania.
