Heritage Lecture: Ferries, Fords and Felled Trees

February 14 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

$10

Before there were bridges, American Indians, settlers, and travelers of all sorts needed ways to cross the wide, shallow Susquehanna. Paul Nevin will explore the means they employed to accomplish this, and the places they chose to cross.

Paul Nevin is the Zimmerman Center Manager for Susquehanna Heritage. Paul and his family have made the river area their home for over thirty years. He has immersed himself in the history and heritage of the Susquehanna as it flows through our region. The leading authority on Susquehanna River rock art, Paul is a caretaker and conducts tours of the ancient American Indian petroglyphs located in the river below Safe Harbor Dam. He serves on the board of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology and is president of the local chapter. Paul is also a talented craftsman who specializes in restoration of historic structures.

The cost for each unique presentation is $10 per/person. Seating is limited so advanced registration is required. Doors will open at 6:00 pm allowing attendees to explore the exhibit and enjoy light refreshments before the lecture begins at 6:30 pm.
