About The Event

Uncover the nearly lost tales of our historically rich area.

Join us for our collaborative lecture series with The Almost Forgotten History of the Red Clay Valley Lecture Series .  Each month we will delve into the past of our historically rich area, discovering secrets and uncovering tales that have built the community and area that we call home.

The first of this series features award winning and nominated documentaries produced by local historians Thomas Gears and Raymond Harrington: "The Almost Forgotten History of Brandywine Springs" and "The Lost Motion Pictures of Brandywine Springs".  See Delaware in 1903 come to life, the crowds, the trolleys, children at play, and amusements in action as filmed by the Edison Company. This documentary is Delaware film history; see the historic Edison films, their backstory, and the amazing story of how they managed to survive.

Admission to this program is free, though donations are graciously accepted.  Light snacks will be available, and drinks will be available for purchase.  Doors open at 630p with the presentation beginning at 7pm.
