Do You Remember Newtown Square Back When?
The Newtown Square Historical Society presents two local experts on the history of Newtown Square who will interest and entertain you with outstanding slides and background on our past. Janice Elston grew up in Newtown Square and her family was part of this history and she can answer almost any question you might have with regard to everything in our town's past. Doug Humes is very familiar with Marple Newtown's history through his research and various local interests. Both Janice and Doug have co-authored books about Newtown Square and the Bartram Covered Bridge. The program will begin at 7:30 P.M.
The public and their comments are always welcome at our meetings. Refreshments will be served, offering the opportunity to network and meet your neighbors. Please go to our website or Facebook page to see some of our historic homes (just under 100!) http/

A Toast to the Tavern: 300 Years! tells the story of this building – from the mysterious life of its builder William Barns, to its many different tenants and owners, stunning architectural features, restoration, and its use today through the Historical Society.  The Barns-Brinton House has 300 years of stories to tell and we hope you’ll join us to celebrate and discover all that this unique building and its rich history have to offer.   Event at the CFHS Visitors Center, 1736 Creek Road, Chadds Ford, PA 19317.

Because one of the Collingdale History Society’s
focus this year is on our veterans, we are pleased
to announce our sponsorship for our first Veterans
Forum taking place on Saturday, May 24th from
10am to 2pm at the Collingdale Community Center.
American war veterans from various wars and
armed services as well as Delaware County students
from grades 7-12 will be participating in the
forum. Students will present our veterans with
questions and then write a short essay if they
choose to participate in our Essay Contest. An
award from the Clifton Heights American Legion
Post will be given to one boy and one girl.
Making a connection between local war veterans

We are excited that the Veterans Forum is our
first effort to bridge the gap between the elderly
and the young. Therefore it is our hope that our
youth will learn the importance of preserving our
past as much as protecting our future.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Elizabeth MacGuire, President
Lisa Small, Vice President/Treasurer
Lisa Dumigan, Secretary
