With the passing of time, many of the stories that are told become forgotten. Many of the people who have walked the streets of York, the same ones we all walk today, have been forgotten, lost to time just as anything else. However, sometimes these people are kept alive by living family members. Others are hidden, only to be found through research. Libraries, archives, historical records and oral records are all time capsules that preserve the stories and histories of the people of our not-so-distant past. There are people in York today that know some of these histories that have been forgotten. It is the duty of all of us to know and recognize the histories of those who came before us, especially if those histories have been hidden. Whose hidden past would you like our community to know? Join us as we uncover Hidden Histories.

Join us from 6pm-7pm on Wednesday, June 14 at First Presbyterian Church’s Café 225. Enjoy coffee! Guy Dunham, a retired pastor of twelve different congregations, will speak at First Presbyterian Church on David Etter Small, an advocate for freedom seekers in the 1800s. This FREE program invites the community to learn history and discuss its impacts in a casual atmosphere.
