Thanks to all for Coming out for History Sunday, and this weekends events

 The Corinthian Yacht Club was not the only large club in Essington, the Philadelphia Yacht Club pictured above stood where the West End Boat Club is today. It closed in the late 1940's.

The Delaware County Historical Society and County Council would like to thank everyone who came out for the Ride for History and the events at Rose Tree Park! We hope to make next year much better when the county is 225 years old.

Members Tour and Tea – Third Annual Tour of the Valley.
This year the focus is on a series of scenes that were described by Antrim Osborne in 1933 in a letter to SRV student Billy Spiller. Master Spiller, as part of a school assignment, wrote Mr. Osborne and asked him what it was like growing up in Rose Valley in the late 1800’s. Cost: Free to members (You can join at the walk.)
