About Alexa

It’s your story, I’m just writing it.

A Berks Born Millennial – My name is Alexa and I started Berks Nostalgia in 2017. I’m a fifth-generation Berks Countian, and grew up listening to my Parents, Grandparents, and Great-Grandparents tell stories about the “good old days”. Berks Nostalgia was created to research and build a collection of these places, things and people I have been told about. It’s my way of keeping their memory alive for generations to come. More than that, my hope is that you, the people who grew up here and have memories of these places add to the story and help preserve local history and lore for your children and grandchildren as well.
