Event description

Description

Back by popular demand! New Castle County is once again partnering with The Pencader Heritage Area Association (PHAA) to provide its residents with a series of fun and informative local history presentations. History is brought to life with depth including facts and perspectives not commonly discussed. Events are put into context by showing how they connect to one another as well as how these events are still relevant today. You will learn not only the “how and what” but also the “why”. Each presentation is followed by a brief, friendly quiz with fun prizes. All sessions meet from 6:30 - 8 p.m. All ages. FREE


August 17 - The Swedes in Delaware During the 17th Century.

"Colonial Swedes in Delaware -perspectives and occurrences not usually presented", presented by James Stone.

James is a board member at the Pencader Heritage Area Association and a dedicated Revolutionary War re-enactor. With a love of history and aspirations to becoming an author, James offers facts and uniquely thoughtful perspectives.

September 21 - Edgar Allan Poe in Newark: Fact or Legend? (Rescheduled from July 20)

Everyone has seen the advertising for a local Newark watering hole featuring Poe's raven. Even the mural on Newark's Chapel Street railroad bridge features Poe's face, but how much of the story about Edgar Allan Poe in Newark is fact, and how much is legend? We will dig into the history and mystery surrounding Poe's visit to Newark, and see some images of the town as it appeared in Poe's time. Will it still be a tall tale when we are done? Quoth the raven, nevermore. Presented by Mary Torbey from the Newark Historical Society

October 19 - The Ghost of Cooch's Bridge and Halloween tradition evolution through the 20th Century

Presented by Keith Jackson & Linda Duffy of the PHAA

November 16 - TBA
