Come early to get a good seat!

 

 

October 17: "BOROUGHS, TOWNS, and VILLAGES of ADAMS COUNTY"
There are 21 townships and 13 incorporated boroughs in Adams County, but some of the dozens of towns and villages were created by local residents, some by the post office and some by the stroke of a cartographer's pen.  Join distinguished local historian and author, Tim Smith as he describes the interesting history and background of the many places we pass through every day.  
 
 
 Special HGAC Educational Speaker Program
 
Monday Evening, November 20, 2017: Ross Hetrick, president of the Thaddeus Stevens Society, will present a program on the second Abolitionists Day planned for March 2018, and the need to honor the men and women who fought against the scourge of slavery. The first Abolitionist Day was held this past March 2017. Hetrick will also focus on local abolitionists and southern resistance to slavery and the Confederation in his presentation.
 
Our THANKS go out to Regina Hollar for such a fine slate of programs in 2017. We can't wait to see what she has planned for 2018!
