History of Knox, 1972 Special 2014 Reissue, Paper Cover, $10.00
In May 2014, Knox Historical Society reissued the Sesquicentennial (1972) paperback history of Knox. The pages of the original edition were scanned, and the type was enlarged slightly for easier reading. When a graphic or photograph did not reproduce well, it was replaced with a similar item if possible. The original advertisers are listed at the back. The support of many new advertisers helped KHS keep the cost of the book affordable.
To order the 2014 reissue of the history of Knox, contact:
