Pa Museums Statewide Conference


Your intrepid blogger and archivist with General Hartranft’s equestrian statue.



If you visited the Historical Society on Monday or Tuesday this week, we might have seemed a little short staffed.  Susan and I were on a road trip to Harrisburg for PA Museum’s annual conference.  We attended some great talks about educational programming, applying for grants, and how to work beer into our events!  We also got to the see State Museum and the John Harris – Simon Cameron Mansion.

I’m sure you’ll be seeing the results of some of the sessions we attended soon.  In the meantime, join us on Sunday at 2:30 for our program on Mary Todd Lincoln.  It will be at our headquarters at 1654 DeKalb St. in Norristown.


Our curator, Susan, with Gen. Hartranft.
