The Historical Society of Frankford Livestream October 13th

Join us for the Historical Society of Frankford’s next live streaming event on Tuesday evening , October 13th, at 7:30 PM, when board member Fred Prescott will discuss the history of Wistar Park, the first official ballfield in this part of town.

Fred’s lecture will be drawn from our archival resources but will also be flavored by his own personal recollections of growing up in Frankford. The growth and development of amateur and semi-professional sports locally will be shown in the context of the rise of professional sports leagues throughout the United States in the years following the Civil War. And learn the story of the found, lost park.
