Telling stories in Hilltown

The Historical Society of Hilltown Township will host “Stories Behind Peace Valley” on Wednesday, March 27, 7:00pm, at the Hilltown Township Building, 13 W. Creamery Road and Route 152, Hilltown Township.

Join author Kathryn McKenna for a presentation about the history of the park and Lake Galena.

This presentation offers a glimpse into the history, businesses, mining operations, lake project and the lives and activities of those who lived and worked there before the manmade lake was created.

Lake Galena and the village of New Galena were named after the discovery of the mineral in the valley that changed the future of the residents and businesses forever. The program is free, but donations are appreciated.
