Welcome to the Norwin Historical Society’s official website. The name of Irwin is becoming known far and wide. In the conversation of the ambitious mechanic, upon the lips of the eager-eyed speculator, and in the mind of the keen, observing capitalist, it is already frequent. The story of its wonderful progress in the past few years, of its many and new industries, and of its unbounded resources, proves its claim to the interested attention of all to whom the gains and activities of business are a necessity, or for whom they possess a charm.
