The Delaware River: A History of the Waterfront presented by Nancy Webster

Join Us!

Sunday, June 3rd at 2 pm at The Helen Kate Furness Free Library

Formed in the ice ages, the Delaware River was an early trade route for the Indians and exploration route for Europeans. It has served as a means of transportation and a facilitator for early settlements and later industries. It has been vital in wars, old and recent. It has hosted queens and pirates, pleasure boats and aircraft carriers.
Join us as Ms. Webster takes us on a historical tour of the River.

The program is free and open to the public.
