Local authors' "Around Scottdale and Everson" becomes part of Arcadia series
By Rachel Basinger
Scottdale and Everson have joined the ranks of Arcadia Publishing's popular Images of America series that highlights the heritage of our country's people and places.
“Around Scottdale and Everson” was written by local authors Paul E. Eckman and Tom Zwierzelewski but represents the collective effort of more than 100 citizens from Scottdale and Everson.
Eckman said he always wanted to write a book about Scottdale and Everson “because of the cherished and vivid memories I have of these places."
