Our History Festival is taking shape! Plan to join us Saturday, May 20, 10 am to 3 pm, rain or shine, to revisit 1840s Quaker life. Learn about how issues like abolitionism, the Underground Railroad, and women’s rights were already impacting Lower Merion.
There will be historical re-enactors, horse and carriage rides, period foods, quilts, clothing, and even a blacksmith. We’ll have crafts for kids and examples of toys and games. A silhouette cutter will demonstrate how Quakers preserved likenesses of their loved ones while maintaining their commitment to simplicity.
Our History Festival web page has been updated and will provide the latest information. We are looking forward to welcoming you for a day of history, fun and food.
