History & History Related Items

Moscow history:

"Once part of Drinker's Beeches, Moscow was named in the 1830s by Drinker for its many immigrants from Moscow, Russia. Well, that's the myth. The only problem is, where's the evidence? Where are Russian family names, Russian churches, Russian street names, etc.? Regardless, several other towns in the state share their names with European cities, among them Versailles, Berlin, Manchester, Dublin, Belfast, Hamburg, Athens, and Rome. "
(from Name Origins of Northeast PA Towns by Mike O'Hara)
