A major milestone for the borough of Bath is garnering recognition all the way from the state House in Harrisburg.
Legislators unanimously passed House Resolution 758 - authored by state Rep. Marcia Hahn (R-Northampton Co.) - which recognizes Bath on its 275th anniversary.
"I've enjoyed being involved with the anniversary celebration, and wanted to recognize the town on this historic occasion," Hahn said. "Bath has a great past, dating back to the American Revolution, and a fine group of town leaders in the present, making it a great place to live."
The borough takes its name from Bath, England and was part of the Scotch-Irish Settlement established in 1728. The borough itself was founded in 1737 when 247 acres of land were purchased for Daniel Craig, whose home still stands near Weaversville.
