Mount Pleasant, SC, May 29, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- From Local authors John and Sue Babbitt comes the newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Postcard History Series: Steuben County. The book contains over 200 images of vintage images and real-photo postcards that tell the story of New York’s colorful 24th county.
First occupied by the Iroquois Confederacy, Steuben County was composed of six original towns. However, long before the coming of humans the county was nothing more than a giant ice sheet. Over time the ice melted and created beautiful the glacial lakes and waterfalls known as the Finger Lakes.
John and Sue know that Steuben County is a great place to live in or visit. They feel that they have captured the “magnificent beauty” that the area has to offer and are excited to share the history that shaped this great community.
Highlights of Steuben County:
- Displays rare, one of a kind, real-photo postcards
- Highlights the Corning Museum of Glass known as the “World’s Largest Glass Museum”
- Showcases many of the natural and man made disasters that plagued early townspeople
- Feature many, now gone, communities that originally made up the county
