Historical Society Meeting

Wednesday, October 16, 2019

The Newtown Square Historical Society invites you to hear Robyn Young speak on honoring some of the great women in Pennsylvania’s history. Pennsylvania marks its most important historic sites with blue and gold commemorative markers, and local historian Robyn Young had been working for years in seeking approvals from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission for 21 roadside markers to honor the accomplishments of the women of Pennsylvania. Her program includes a slideshow of photos of the historical markers, their locations, and the women who are honored. Young will discuss these important women who were scientists, artists, doctors, and suffragists. Her book, Women in Penn's Woods: A History of Women in Pennsylvania will be available for purchase after the program. Admission is free. Refreshments are served. Come out and meet your history minded neighbors and learn and be entertained!
