Railroads, Reclamation and the River:
A History of Pasco by Walter Oberst
Railroads, Reclamation and the River is considered the definitive history of Pasco and much of Franklin County. Walter Oberst was a beloved history teacher who taught in the Pasco school district from 1928 until he retired in 1967. Instrumental in forming the Franklin County Historical Society, he is considered its founding father, served as the first President and as editor of publications for many years. The history of our town could not be written in isolation from contiguous and adjacent areas. thus it is not confined just to the events which occurred within the city limits.In order to present a more complete and authentic picture of the pioneer events and persons that influenced the history of our town, a certain amount of up county history is included.

Yet this does not purport to be a history of Franklin County as such.
