The Tamaqua Historical Society is looking for volunteers to help with basic improvements as well as many other activities provided by the Tamaqua Historical Society at the Tamaqua Historical Society Museum and other community events. Historical society President Dale Freudenberger, right, encourages any older teens or adults who are willing to learn, help, and have fun, to stop by the museum, 118 West Broad St. any Tuesday between 7-9 p.m., or by calling Freudenberger at (610) 597-6722. Pictured with Freudenberger is George Pappas of Tamaqua. They are discussing a highly-detailed miniature display of the Burkhardt Moser Log Home, Tamaqua's first house dated 1801. This miniature, as well as many other detailed miniatures in the museum, were built and donated by the late Robert Knadler. Pictured in the background is a large 1958 aerial photo of Tamaqua taken by the late Roy Ackerman. The historical society has all Ackerman's photos in its collection.
