On the occasion of the Bicentennial celebrations of 1976, the Worcester Historical Society wrote A History of Worcester Township (Boyertown, PA: Boyertown Publishing Company, 1976). The 556-page book tells the story of Worcester - its inns, villages, churches, schools, mills, and residents - from the time of William Penn to the Bicentennial, including an index to over 200 pages of information on historic homes.
This collection includes copies of newspaper clippings and other source materials, research notes, and drafts of text for the book "History of Worcester." The collection is organized in the order of the book.
Materials collected by or written by the Research Committee of Worcester Historical Society, circa 1976-1978.
