Brown's Mill School
For eighty‑five years this stone structure served as an educational institution and community center for the Brown's Mill area. Evening singing schools, debates, and spelling bees were held during each school year and one report tells of as many as a hundred sleighs bringing people on a winter night, to take part in a social event at the school. Citizens of the Brown's Mill community raised the funds to construct the school house. The stone structure served as a school and community center for the area. In 1789, the original school, a small log structure, was constructed southeast of this site and was eventually replaced by this building. Brown's Mill School had been restored and preserved by the Pennsylvania Historical Commission and serves as a memorial to the one-room schools of the country. The Brown's Mill Graveyard contains the graves of many early settlers. Recognized as an historic cemetery and the final resting place of seventeen Revolutionary War veterans, the Franklin County Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution erected a memorial to these soldiers in 1935. Among the burial sites is the grave of Major General James Potter, one of three generals from Pennsylvania to be accorded this rank in the War for Independence. James Potter's memory was perpetuated by the Commonwealth when Potter County was created on March 26, 1804. James McLene, a member of the Continental Congress and political leader in state government during the Revolution and for a decade following the war, is also buried in the graveyard.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
