Hancock County Represented in New Book

Local author releases new book featuring collection of vintage images and postcards
Jan. 3, 2013 - PRLog -- New to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Postcard History Series is Hancock County by local author Joseph L. Skvarenina. This pictorial history boasts more than 200 vintage images and provides readers with a unique opportunity to reconnect with the history that shaped their community.

Created on March 1, 1828, and named for the first signer of the Declaration of Independence, Hancock County has rich traditions that have made it unique in the story of the Hoosier State. From its early beginnings as fertile farmland to its industrial boom, this history of the county chronicles the years from 1880 to the present and provides a postcard viewpoint of local heritage, celebrations, institutions, and individuals.

Many of the postcards come from private collections and have not been previously published. These images offer the reader an opportunity to travel down the dusty roads of the past and examine the spirit of Hancock County.

Highlights of Hancock County include:
•   Shirley
•   Old McCordsville
•   Cumberland
•   Greenfield
•   Cephas Fort’s Town
•   The Jonathan Evans Settlement
•   Riley Lore
