From Our President

We were fifty years old in 2014 and the Museum Committee prepared an exhibit of photos and documents at the Dewees Museum that might have your name or face on them. There was so much to tell about the early days of the Society and there were so many of you who took part in this large undertaking.

In addition to this exhibit, in the Miller room, the rest of the building was freshened so you could see early Gilbert coverlets woven in the 1700s, a newly acquired painting of Henry Clay which has a connection to Trappe, and our military room, just to name a few.

Don’t forget the Research Library and the services of Rev. Judith Meier, Historian, in case you need help locating some family history that has you stumped. There are also family files and subject files that might answer your questions.

In the early society notes and minutes, there was a goal to identify and document the homes in our area which are greater than one hundred years of age and to provide a plaque for each of these. This project continues today and if you are interested, we will be glad to talk with you.

Enjoy the season and bring family and friends along for a great day at the museum. Our scheduled Sunday tours will resume in April or call 610-489-7560 to make arrangements.

Celebrating Fifty Years (1964-2014)

The Museum Committee planned and prepared the fifty years celebration of service to our community. Events and photos and memorabilia were collected for an exhibit in the Dewees Museum of our life together this past half century. The photos below reflect the enthusiasm of the Museum Committee in this effort.

The Museum Committee meets the third Thursday morning of every month in Dewees. Why not stop by and get involved?

We hope to see you one Sunday to enjoy a step back in time.
