Germantown in the 20th Century Part 1: 1900-1959 is here and ready to be enjoyed for years to come. Now on sale by the Germantown Historical Society, this book is a pictorial journey through the first part of the twentieth century, decade-by-decade. The reader will find in each chapter a review of significant international, national, state-wide events, all designed to put in perspective what occurred locally in Germantown and the surrounding area during the decade. Interesting captioned photos of developing agricultural and commercial ventures, along with schools, churches, recreation and family life are revealed as this sleepy, rural area slowly grew to a booming city suburb. The book is made personal through rarely-seen photos provided by people in our community willing to share their family's story. The 128-page 8"x11" hard cover book, printed on high quality, durable paper, sells for $55.00, tax included. It is available at the publisher, Allied Digital Photo, and at Sinter Klausen Christmas Shop and German Glass and Gifts. A fourth way to purchase is at the historical society's website www.bastbellmuseum.com, with an additional shipping fee of five dollars. The book will make a wonderful gift for someone who knows and loves Germantown.
