Excerpt from Old-Time Archbald; The Early Institutions and Industries of the Town: How the Place Looked to Pioneers, Important Happenings in Its History

If Any Explanation Is Needed For the printing of this book, it may be found. in the "Old Home" celebration which takes place here during the week beginning July 5, 1915. The book is made up almost entirely of articles that have appeared in the Archbald Citizen at various times during the past twenty one years. They have, however, been re-written in some details and edited in others in order to bring the publication up-to-date. In addition, there are many facts stated that have never before appeared in print.

The compilers were fortunate in having assistance in preparing this book from the only person in the town who was capable of giving it, for the reason that he is the sole survivor of those who came to the village in 1845 when the town may be said to have originated. Mr, Daniel J. Gilmartin was a boy when he came here, but he has a very keen recollection of the village and its pioneers, and his aid in the preparation of this book was of great value. It is a pleasure for the compilers to thus place on record their indebtedness to Mr. Gilmartin for his generous and willing help in gathering a mass of information concerning the early history of the town that could not otherwise be obtained. To other residents of the town who aided in the preparation of the work, the thanks of the compilers are hereby tendered.
