CHS and Homanities Council Present Speaker
Charlestown Historical Society will present through the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, Commonwealth Speaker, Dr. David R. Contosta, who will give a presentation entitled "Blurring the Lines Between Cities and Suburbs" on Wednesday, May 6, 1998.
This Commonwealth Speakers presentation has been supported by a grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.
Dr. Contosta is a Fulbright Scholar and Professor of History at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia, PA, and earned his Ph.D. in History at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. His presentation will focus on the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia and explain why the line between cities and suburbs is often blurred and is becoming more so all the time.
Dr. Contosta's presentation will follow the Historical Society's quarterly general membership meeting, which will start at 8:00 p.m. Following Dr. Contosta, Jacob Merriwether will demonstrate the Charlestown Township web site using a projection system. Refreshments will be served starting at 7:30 p.m.
CHS holds its meetings at the Charlestown Play House on Charlestown Road, Phoenixville, PA, just north of the Church Road intersection. Charlestown Road intersects with Route 23 in Phoenixville and Phoenixville Pike (a/k/a State Road - Route 29) in Malvern.
This event is free and open to the public. Please join us. For information please phone 610-935-7818 or, during the day, 610-251-3258.
