Downtown Norristown was once the destination shopping district for central Montgomery County, but years of decline and neglect have left it a shell of its former glory.
Author Michael E. Tolle will discuss the history of the district and some of the elements that led to its decline at a public discussion on Sunday, Jan. 13 at 2:30 p.m. at the Historical Society of Montgomery County, 1654 DeKalb Street in Norristown. Tolle, a former staff member of the society, will also sign copies of his book, What Killed Downtown? Norristown,Pennsylvania, from Main Street to the Malls.
