Thacher Park, 99 years, a gift to the people

NEW SCOTLAND — Join us on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 7 p.m. for a historic journey through Thacher Park from the time of the Native Americans to current times.

Timothy Albright, Thacher Park historian and co-author of John Boyd Thacher State Park and the Indian Ladder Region, will present an informal slide presentation on the history of the park.  He will highlight points of interest in the park from over the last 200 or so years.

Come hear about the ancient and recent events of this public treasure that is part of our local area.

The program is open to the public and is held at the Clarksville Community Church on the Delaware Turnpike in Clarksville.

Refreshments will be served following the program.  For more information, call 768-2870.

Editor’s note: Marilyn Miles is a member of the Clarksville Historical Society, which is hosting the event.
