Schuylkill County: a place that calls you back

"Had a vision in my sleep one night that I'd return there someday..."

Those words are part of the chorus of Lester Hirsh's eight-minute-long musical tribute to Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania: Pottsville and surrounding towns, the rivers Schuylkill and Susquehanna, and so many of the sights in the area.

The stanza that mentions the "brewery on the hill" refers to the famous Yuengling Brewery, America's oldest (since 1829).

Warning: you may not be able to watch this video without wanting to go for a visit. The history and beauty of Schuylkill County make it a magical place.

Thanks very much to Barbara Joly of Our Carroll Family Genealogy for finding and sharing this video.

You are very welcome, Lisa
When I saw this video, I got pretty excited !
Yes, it does make you want to travel. Maybe one day, we will go and pay our respects.
Have a nice day.
