17: "BOROUGHS, TOWNS, and VILLAGES of ADAMS COUNTY"
There are 21 townships and 13 incorporated boroughs in Adams County, but some of the dozens of towns
and villages were created by local residents, some by the post office and some by the stroke of a cartographer's pen.
Join distinguished local historian and author, Tim Smith as he describes the interesting history and background of the many
places we pass through every day.
