Archives Month Philly Open House
For Archives Month Philly, PHS will host an open house Friday, October 16th at 5pm.
Guests will be among the first to see our latest in-house exhibit Journeys of Faith: Artifacts from the Mission Field. Guests will have an opportunity to hear “Chorale for a New Organ,” an unpublished musical composition by Samuel Barber being deposited at the Society. The music will be played on “Cornelia,” a restored pump organ -- the portable reed organ came to PHS in disrepair after extensive use by the Sunday school missionary William H. Schureman.
Refreshments will be served. We are grateful to Victory Brewing for its support of the event!
We look forward to seeing you there.
