March 14 Speaker Event with Karen Washburn

Monday, February 26, 2018 2:11 PM | Rebekah Johnson (Administrator)

Please join us on March 14 at 7 PM at the Great Falls Library to hear Karen Washburn speak on the longer aspects of history of Great Falls. Her talk is titled ”Evolution of Upper Seneca Road Neighborhood from Wilderness to Commercial Hub to Quiet Backwater.”  The Great Falls Library is at 9830 Georgetown Pike in Great Falls.

Karen is a noted local historian who has spoken before us many times, has done original research, received several awards and written a series of historical articles in the Elan periodical. She is a past President of the Great Falls Historical Society and a charter member from 40 years ago. She has surveyed numerous historical houses and successfully worked to place several structures on the National Register of Historical Places, including the Great Falls Grange, the original Forestville School, and most recently, the entire Georgetown Pike roadbed.


Admission is free and we invite members of the public to attend, as well as to join our society. You may do so on our internet site, gfhs.org. Membership is $35 a family for 12 months, and you may safely pay for this easily on-line. Please bring your friends and neighbors. This is the fifth historical talk we have had this year, and there are two more yet to come, including on the escapades of Private John Mosby during the Civil War, and the Burning of Washington by the British during the War of 1812.

The Great Falls Historical Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization
