|From J. M. Kruder's "Sanitary Survey of Lehighton, PA (1916)." A detailed analysis and description of the sanitary |
conditions of Lehighton by a Harvard Medical School doctor. It includes many first hand photos and Department of
Health statistics and recommendations for this industrious town of German migrants which still did not have
a central water or sewage system. Much more to come from this unique look at Lehighton soon.
Be sure to see the post on the history of the Packerton Yards when it was the community of "Burlington" that existed there
before for flood of 1862. Click here:http://culturedcarboncounty.blogspot.com/2011/01/packertons-roots-dolansburg-and.html
