Up Volney Slideshow

There are still a few people living in the community of Volney, and it is the location of the Beaver Township hall. The names Olney and Viola were submitted to the post-office dept., however, towns with these names already existed. The postal service then took the V from Viola and added it to Olney to produce Volney. Plans were, at one time, to rebuild Volney as a religious community named Gracetown.
