Coming Event

The Battles of Germantown: Effective Public History in America

 David Young, Author

Wednesday, February 5, 2020, 6:30 PM (immediately following East Falls Historical Society Members Meeting at 6 PM) 

Falls of Schuylkill Library, Midvale Ave. and Warden Dr.

David  Young is Executive Director of the Delaware Historical Society and  previous Executive Director of Cliveden. He will discuss his book, The Battles of Germantown: Effective Public History in America.

Known as America’s most historic neighborhood, Germantown has  distinguished itself by using public history initiatives to forge  community. Progressive programs about ethnic history, postwar urban  planning, and civil rights have helped make historic preservation and  public history meaningful. The Battles of Germantown considers what these efforts can tell us about public history’s practice and purpose in the United States.
