But for the quirks of history could the Zimmerman Center be a part of the Town of Pleasant Garden? In this lecture, I’ll take a look at a bridge, a town and later a railroad – all planned in the late 18th to mid-19th century for the Long Level area along the Susquehanna River, but never built.
The street along the river was named Front Street in the planned Town of Pleasant Garden. The location of the other planned streets in the town are laid out on the westward looking, Birds Eye View of southern end of Native Lands County Park in Long Level area.
In this lecture, I’ll share the discovery of the documents that pinpoint the locations of the town, bridge and later a railroad. These documents contain some neat quirks that you should enjoy during this evening of exploring local history.
