Noxen Couple Donates County Relic to Courthouse

Tom and Barb Field of Noxen came across this original 1853 property map of Wyoming County at an ephemera sale in Plains a few years ago. After keeping it rolled up and safe from further damage during that time, the couple decided to donate it to the county for display at the courthouse in Tunkhannock. The commissioners gladly accepted the offering, which predates the commonly seen 1869 map, a copy of which hangs in the commissioners board room. Wyoming County Room Tax funds were used to lightly restore the map and properly preserve it in its new frame.

The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
