Description

Springfield Township Historical Society is Proud to Present an ENCORE of our 5th Annual History In Motion

Carson Valley & Erdenheim Farm: Fantasy Village & Country Estate

Thursday, April 18th, 2019. Doors Open at 7pm with the presentation to begin at 7:30pm.

The Carson Valley School and Erdenheim Farm, once parts of a single property, are places of unparalleled beauty and serenity at the edge of a large city. Dr. David Contosta will tell the story of how this unlikely pairing has been shaped and preserved over several centuries.

David R. Contosta is Professor of History at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia and a frequent speaker before civic and community groups. He is the author of more than twenty books, many of them about the Philadelphia region. These include “Suburb in the City: Chestnut Hill Philadelphia”; “A Philadelphia Family: The Houstons and Woodwards of Chestnut Hill”; and “Metropolitan Paradise: Philadelphia’s Wissahickon Valley,” co-authored with Carol Franklin. David has also written about Henry Adams, Abraham Lincoln, and Charles Darwin. His most recent book is “America’s Needless Wars.” In addition, he has lectured at universities in China and South Korea. At present David is working on a documentary film about the Wissahickon Valley.

Your Entry includes a complimentary Wine Tasting by Chaddsford Winery.
