Merion Friends History Festival is this Saturday!

Remember to join us Saturday, May 21, 10 am – 3 pm, rain or shine, for the Merion Friends Meeting History Festival. Want to know about the Underground Railroad, the Abolition Movement, the early (mid-19th century) Women’s Rights Movement? We’ll have re-enactors presenting the views of significant Quakers of that time. Want to know more about how ordinary people lived in the 1840’s? We’ll have food, children’s toys/games/crafts, horse and carriage rides, a blacksmith, a silhouette cutter and more.  Want to go deep into the history and artifacts? We’ll have poster exhibits, quilts, clothing, and pictures. Always wondered what a Quaker meetinghouse is like inside, or want to know where the bodies are buried? There will be tours of the meetinghouse and burying ground.

Please join us! See the festival brochure here
