NORTHERN CAMBRIA — The Barnesboro Centennial History Book, originally published in 1994, has been reprinted. If you missed out on the original run, you're in luck! The second printing is now available. The original printing of 2,000 copies in 1994 sold out in 1996.

The books are $40.00 each if picked up and $40.00 each plus $6.00 shipping and handling if ordered by mail.
You may choose which non-profit you wish to support. If you wish to support the fire company, order from Hope Fire Company, PO Box 1217, Northern Cambria, PA 15714 or pick up your copy at Charlson's Furniture (on behalf of the Fire Company). If you would like to support the library, pick up or order your book from Northern Cambria Public Library, 1030 Philadelphia Avenue, Northern Cambria, PA. -- Books are beautiful hardbound books with old photos and history of Barnesboro with sections on businesses, churches, people influential to our town and more.
