Emmaus Historical Society
Special Web Display inspired by Richard Strouse who was a dedicated member of the Society for many Years.
Richard worked for years at EFM and inspired North East PA Crossroads to include photos of all of EFM’s Trivets. We dedicate the display in memory of Richard ‘Dick’ Strouse.
Click on the Trivet to go to the NEPA Crossroads web page.
