The last time I walked down this street was in 1960 and it doesn't seem to have changed a bit. I loved every summer that I spent there when I was growing up in the fifties. Any body have the same thoughts?

I went back in 1989 and the only change was that the iron bridge was gone and replaced with the new one. Does anyone know where Kevin Lindemuth is these days - we spent 4 years in the Navy together.

Tionesta doesn't look quite like this anymore. The fire took out the whole block on the right side of the street.

I grew up in Tionesta and actually I am Albert Koch's great-niece.

I was also related to the Lindemuth family on my mother's side.

when I grew up here times were very differant. Everyone knew your name and knew your parents.It was the kind of hometown that everyone took an intrest in your upbringing and and stood by one another. definately Americana at its best. I too am a desendant of Albert Koch

I wasborn and raised in the town of Tionesta also. We moved away when I was 13 but came back on weekends and vacations. I loved it there. I do not like seeing the changes that there have been. Its like half of that wonderful little town in gone. Jim Koch if you read these comments we are related. My father was Victor Koch, my grandfather was Karl Koch, and Albert Koch was my great uncle. I am related to the Lindemuth's on my mother's side.

I also grew up in Tionesta, in the 50's. Trix Anderson, my grandfather, was a barber there for almost 70 years. My mother was Maude Neiman and my father "Penny" Neiman. Jocky Vail ran the meat market, Bucky Kilmer ran the corner variety store and Cropp's dairy was the hang-out for us kids. Don Neiman
