The Historical Society of Frankford opens the Fall 2018 series on Tuesday, September 11th at 7:30 PM with the story of Elizabeth Drinker.
Doreen Velnich, a member and longtime friend of The Historical Society of Frankford, and recently retired from the Free Library of Philadelphia, will present a paper originally read to the Society in April 1931 by Mabel Corson, a founding member of the Society.
Elizabeth Drinker (nee Sandwith) (1735-1807) was a Quaker diarist of Irish descent who maintained a journal of her daily activities beginning in her teenage years. Her residence in Frankford was Womrath Place, which tradition defines as a special place of interest during the American Revolution.
Come and experience this exciting presentation.
