Brandonville, PA

Population (year 2000): 217 (our addition makes that number 219, but we know of at least one death in the two months since we moved in...so it may still be 217...about the same number that lives in our building in Brooklyn...well, not really...)

Elevation: 1190 feet (no wonder it is so easy to become winded when working outside...and here I thought it was because we were out of shape!)

County: Schuylkill
