Thursday, June 20th 2019 from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

What made this area unique before it was recognized as Lancaster County? In the early 1700's an amazing mix of cultures laid the foundations of Lancaster County.

With a focus on the diversity of early settlers in Lancaster County, this program includes background on William Penn and the importance of his stand on religious freedom. Because of that religious freedom, settlers from many religions and European countries chose to move here. The diversity of these colonists had a lasting impact still evident in Lancaster County today. Presented by John Brown. For adults and older teens. Please register.
