Interactive Tour of Hidden American History and Culture
2:00 PM, Sunday, May 19th, 2019
Join us on Sunday, May 19th, 2019 as Greg Van Antwerp, The Urban Archaeologist, takes us on an interactive multi-media tour of hidden American history and culture. For decades, Greg has been uncovering item after item, story after story of forgotten people, places and things that deserve another moment in the spotlight. His discoveries are humorous - an 1867 recipe for "Toad Ointment"; Historic - an 1861 Civil War Military Pass to the battle at Bull Run; Unique - the 1932 home movies of a well known Broadway playwright. The stories behind their discovery, research and return are even more fascinating.
Greg Van Antwerp is a blogger historian who searches sales for interesting items and researches their stories for the purpose of sharing their significance with audiences.
We will hold our annual Member's Meeting on Sunday, May 19 at 1:00 PM.
Light refreshments will be served, and new Board Members and Officers will be voted in. Join us to hear about our upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and to talk with members of our Board.
