A Small Town's Legacies takes the reader on an historical journey that begins in the 1700s with early settlers building homesteads in the swampy wilderness of Northwest Pennsylvania. Their experiences of hardships, ingenuity, and bravery enabled these stalwart people to survive and create a thriving community first known as Coniot.

The early residents of Espyville and the generations that followed adopted resourcefulness that allowed them to implement ideas new to the American way of life. A century and a half before Pymatuning Lake put Espyville on the map, the inhabitants had already established their imprint on America.

This is the story of the people who chose to live in a small town in America and the legacies they entrusted to future generations.
