Desserts and Diaries at DCHA

Chase away the winter blahs! Visit the Delaware County Historical Association (DCHA) on Saturday afternoon, Jan. 20 for an afternoon of sundry delectable delights. At 2 p.m., museum staff members will start to read from a variety of historic diaries and narratives drawn from the museum’s collections. An array of desserts will be available for guests to enjoy while listening to the readings. Tea and coffee will also be served.

Excerpts that will be presented include those from the diaries of Ebenezer Maxwell, Clara Davenport and Florence Howard. Additional journals, newspaper articles and letters will introduce audience members to the lives of A.J., John and Phoebe Miller, Walter Hoag, John Martin, Robert Smith, Irene Rider and the Nichol family.

Additionally, audience members will be invited to read excerpts from historic letters, journals or diaries in their possession – perhaps a discovery about ancestors or the family that once lived in their house.

This event is not recommended for those embarking on a New Year’s weight loss regimen, however, it is recommended for those looking to spend an enjoyable afternoon learning more about those who once lived in Delaware County. To enjoy this delectable afternoon, reserve your space by Jan. 19. Cost: $10 per person.
