My home town was lit

What’s your hometown known for?
This week in 1883, Thomas Edison did some work in my hometown of Shamokin. This central PA coal town’s claim to fame:  America’s first electrically lighted church…Thanks to Tom.

And was the home of the world’s largest ticket company:  The National Ticket Company.
Your turn…where’s home and what’s it known for?
 
PS: A photo of where I spent just about every Saturday morning as a kid in Shamokin…at the movies. (Boomer Memory)
