Historian Carl LaVO will share the stories of three sites “Just Beyond the Canal’s Banks” at an illustrated presentation on Wednesday, May 11th at 7:30pm. The program will be held in the Old Library by Lake Afton, 46 W. Afton Avenue in Yardley. It is co-sponsored by the Friends of the Delaware Canal and the Yardley Historical Association.
The Delaware Canal is a 58.9-mile-long ribbon woven from fibers of nature and history. Its tales alone can fill volumes, but the Canal becomes so much more interesting when the stories of what happened beyond the waterway’s 60-foot-wide property lines are explored.
