About the Pamphlet Collection

View the Pamphlet Collection (separate site) –

The Pamphlet Collection includes scans of leaflets and pamphlets distributed by local municipalities and organizations within the last 40-some years (e.g., “ephemera”).

These are typically short informational handouts that capture interesting information on towns and businesses and people. See the Books Archive for longer-form historical material.

There are currently over 100 files in the collection, in 6 categories across 3 towns. The collection categories are:

  • HwBoro Harvest Fair brochures, over 30 years
  • House Tour brochures including the HVHS and HPL
  • Misc Events materials including town Centennial pamphlets
  • Misc Municipal materials including 125th Anniversary programs
  • Misc Organization materials from business association, churches, libraries, fire dept. and the like
  • Veterans/Legion materials including Post events

The Collection Viewer web application is designed to explore this collection of miscellaneous pamphlets. The materials are organized by town (e.g., HwBoro, PennBoro, HwTwp) and category, and the files are named beginning with the date for convenient sorting and searching.
