A History of Bridgeville from Colonial Times to 1950
- by John F. Oyler
The following pages are a collection of essays dealing with the history of the Bridgeville area, beginning in colonial times and continuing through 1950. In 2013 and 2014 the Bridgeville Area Historical Society and the Bridgeville Public Library sponsored a series of fifteen lectures on this subject. Following each lecture, I commented on the specific topic with a column in my series “Water Under the Bridge” which is published weekly in the Bridgeville Area News. Some lectures generated several columns. These columns have been modified and are presented in chronological order.
