In this new series, I will be speaking to Mr. Harold Smith, a well-known, highly respected local resident who is president of the Northampton Historical Society and historian of the Zion Stone Church. He is a former employee of Miller's Department Store in Northampton, Kotsch's Market in Fullerton and member of numerous community organizations.
Mr. Smith is extremely proud of his Pennsylvania "Dutch" German heritage. The Pennsylvania Dutch were some of the early immigrants to "Penn's Woods." Many came from the Palatinate area of Germany.
