Recent and Upcoming Activities

Our next meeting will be on Friday, March 10, 2017, at the Jack C. Sheppard Sr. Community Center, starting at 7:30 PM. The program is summarized below:

On September 16, 1872, the Philadelphia Inquirer ran this advertisement: "The new town of Wenonah, on the West Jersey Railroad, above Glassboro, has been quite a success this past year, several houses having been erected during the summer, and the Wenonah House having been filled with boarders all the season."

Who designed these "cottages" for wealthy Philadelphians? They reflect the work of well-known Philadelphia architects who were pioneers in residential and hotel construction.

Our program will be the story behind several of our most impressive homes.

The current schedule for the remaining meetings in 2017 follows:

April 7 (Jack C. Sheppard Sr. Community Center at 7:30 PM) - "Dispelling Myths Concerning Historic Preservation"
