Very clean inside and out. Appears unread and unopened. 220 pages. "Settlers first established the community that became Deerpark in 1690. The settlement, on land most likely purchased from Indians, was at the time 25 or 30 miles distant from its nearest neighbor. This book begins with that early settlement and traces more than 150 years of the lives, customs, and characteristics of Deerpark's citizens, as well as its history. ... Sections deal with everything from market prices of agricultural products, to local topography and wildlife, to the 'use of spirits at funerals and weddings,' to population and emigration data...The text is readable and enjoyable, and impressive in its thoroughness; and a new everyname index is a great aid to researchers."
