May 2021 Membership Meeting!

Fort Sumpter – Nebinger School

Please join us on May 27, 2021, for a tour of the Red Lion Train Station Museum.  Instead of our usual speaker, docents will direct visitors on a tour of the Museum. Since consolidating all artifacts from the Center Square Museum, the Station Museum has undergone remarkable changes. Items that had never been displayed in the past, are now on view.

The meeting will begin at 7:00 pm, at 73 North Main Street, Red Lion. Parking is at the metered spots (no charge) and beside the Station. Meetings are free and open to the public; membership is not a requirement to attend.
