Click all images to enlarge. The original publication was not this
color, but converted so it would be legible.
The historical sketch begins: "Carlisle, the county seat of Cumberland
County was founded in 1751, when Pennsylvania was an English Province
under the proprietorship of the three Penns -- John, Richard and
Thomas. The lot occupied by the Carlisle Deposit Bank was the first
grant of record in Carlisle, May 17, 1751."
