On Thursday, November 17, 2011, the Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission is sponsoring a symposium on the legacy of William Penn’s Holy Experiment entitled “William Penn’s Legacy: Does the Holy Experiment Continue?” In addition to historians Randall Miller (St. Joseph’s in Philadelphia), Dennis Downey (Millersville University), and Emma Lapansky (Haverford College), our very own John Fea will be one of the speakers.
The event will take place on Thursday, November 17, 2011 from 7:00-9:00pm at the Camp Curtin Memorial Mitchell United Methodist Church on 2221 N. 6th Street in Harrisburg, PA. (See the above link for details). The event is free and open to the public.
I would love to see the place filled with Messiah College history students! Give it some thought.
