In fall 2011, Tropical Storm Lee flooded much of Annville and destroyed many of Friends of Old Annville's paper-based documents, photos, and artifacts housed in the basement of the Annville Train Station. After that event, we dried as many of the soaked documents as was possible and scanned them to capture digital images. The flooding event signaled the beginning of our Electronic Archives of Annville History.
The videos in our collection are amateur efforts, a group of these were designed by college students and others taken by FOOA members and other interested parties. You will find that they are both informative and interesting. Visit the page and learn a bit about Annville history.
