A Quiet Boomtown: Jamison City, Pa. , 1889-1912

By Craig A. Newton and James R. Sperry

Discover the history of how this community in the northern reaches of Columbia County owed its existence to a railroad, which in turn, enabled the lumbering and tanning industries to become its economic foundation. The study also provides a descriptive account of community life. Its future and prosperity were dependent on a forest that was constantly under attack by the woodman’s axe and saw.
