The Lansdale Historical Society will present the history of churches in Lansdale. The Historical Society’s Pat Rieker says the event is scheduled for Tuesday evening.
“When Lansdale was getting its start in 1872, it was very important that churches become established and families needed to move here and they were looking for a church home. The founding fathers, Dr. Jacobs and the Heebner brothers, who were the owned the Heebner Agricultural Works, were instrumental in establishing the Lansdale Methodist-Episcopal Church, which was the first church in Lansdale.”
The event is Tuesday night at the Lansdale Park & Rec. building at 7:30. Pat Rieker was a guest Monday morning on the AM-Edition with Darryl Berger.
