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/www.historicnewtownsquare.org/
