Saturday, February 16, 2019 by DONALD R. SERFASS in Focus

Descendants of Scott from Oregon, California, Delaware and other states gathered Nov. 11, 2018, to unveil an extensive collection of Scott’s creativity, the inaugural exhibit at the newly-opened Tamaqua Historical Society Museum Annex, 114 W. Broad St., Tamaqua.
