In this exhibit we present a souvenir book published for Shamokin’s Diamond Jubilee, celebrating the 75th anniversary of the city in 1939. In this book we are presented with a history of the city’s founding, organization, civic institutions, churches and industry.
What’s most interesting is a program for a production entitled “Cavalcade of Coalers” which can be found on page 63. This was a multi-episode play depicting the pivotal moments in the founding of the City of Shamokin. Do not forget to check out the historic photos taken during the Diamond Jubilee by Frank Posca HERE.
