Industrial Rose Valley
Tuesday April 9, 2013
8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: Old Mill, Old Mill Lane, Rose Valley

Rose Valley Musuem and Historical Society presents "Industrial Rose Valley." Nancy Webster, Delaware County Historian, tells the story of the four main mills of Rose Valley and the culture of the mill community.
Cost: $10 non-members; $9.00 members

                                                                  Cumberland Cemetery,
                                                                  the historic resting place
                                                                for many prominent Delaware
                                                               and Chester County residents,
                                                                    will be the subject of a
                                                            presentation at Penn State Brandywine
                                                                      on Wednesday April 17 at 7 p.m.
      Cumberland Cemetery remains an historic gem nestled in the heart of Middletown Township. It retains the charm and tranquility of a turn-of-the-century cemetery in a country setting.
     The presentation will trace the cemetery’s history and its importance as an historic landmark within Middletown Township. Other topics will include the results of a ground penetrating radar study of the section of the cemetery known as Pratt’s Burying Ground, gravestone symbolism that can be found within Cumberland Cemetery, the importance of the interment ledger and what it tells us about Middletown Township’s history since 1885, and the life and times of the cemetery’s founders. Learn about the unusual background of Cumberland Cemetery’s first superintendent and his place within the community, and explore the past lives of some of the cemetery’s residents.
Cumberland is much more than a simple country cemetery within Middletown Township. It is a reflection of the lives and times of the people who lived here in Middletown, and it reflects the changing history of our nation as well. Discover what makes the Cumberland Cemetery unique and why it is so important to Middletown Township.
       Refreshments will be served. Space is limited, so please call ahead to reserve a spot. To make a reservation, or for more information, please contact Eileen Fresta, or 610-399-8932.    The presentation will be held in the Tomeszko Building.  Penn State Brandywine is located at 25 Yearsley Mill Road, Media, PA 19063 (Rt. 352 across from Cumberland Cemetery).
