An Indian lecture in Marple this week and my program has been rescheduled

                   The Castle Rock Covered Bridge on West Chester Pike at Crum Creek about 1920.

On Wednesday, August 15 the Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation will offer its first ever “Wednesday Evening at the Farm” with a special presentation by local historian, Keith Lockhart. The event will be held inside the main ballroom at the headquarters at Ridley Creek State Park. This is the office for the State Park, the old Jeffords Mansion.
At 7 PM Lockhart will present a program featuring his prized collection of Delaware County postcards. Lockhart’s collection is considered the largest of its kind in the region. Take a trip through Delaware County 100 years ago when postcards were the rage! During the evening the Colonial Plantation farmhouse and the kitchen garden will be available for tours they will open at 6. Demonstrations taking place include textile making and long rifle firing. Of course, the Plantation’s farm animals will be around for viewing.
Closing time is 9 PM. Admission is $5 per person. Children under 4 are free. One fee for both events! Money to benefit the Colonial Plantation.
The Plantation is located in Ridley Creek State Park and is easily reached via Routes 3, 352, 252 or Providence Road.
