    Book details

Once covered by an inland sea, southeastern Montgomery County was originally inhabited by dinosaurs, some of whose fossils have been found in Bluebell and Port Kennedy near Valley Forge. The area was then settled by the Unami, or Turtle Clan, of the Lenape Nation who came to the area from the west about 600 years before the European settlers. Southeastern Montgomery County provides a glimpse of the towns and villages in this corner of the county through early-20th century images, historical facts, and local stories.

Jerry Chiccarine moved to Collegeville from Norristown as a young child. He grew up near the Perkiomen Creek and now resides in Jeffersonville. An enthusiastic collector of antiques and memorabilia, he is a member of the Historical Society of Montgomery County. He is also a published poet and an internationally renowned artist.

    These little volumes by Jerry Chiccarine are gems for anyone trying to piece together local, small town history. The images complete the picture of a forgotten past. In compiling my mother's memories I have found these most helpful in putting "flesh on the bones" of her stories. Bravo!!
