Desserts and diaries at DCHA

Delhi — Chase away the winter blahs! Visit the Delaware County Historical Association (DCHA) on Saturday afternoon, January 20 for an afternoon of sundry delectable delights.

At 2 p.m., members of the museum staff will begin reading from a variety of historic diaries and narratives – all drawn from the museum’s collections. While guests relax and listen to the readings, enjoy an array of sumptuous desserts. Tea and coffee will also be served.

Excerpts that will be presented include those from the diaries of Ebenezer Maxwell, Clara Davenport and Florence Howard. Additional journals, newspaper articles and letters will introduce audience members to the lives of A.J., John and Phoebe Miller, Walter Hoag, John Martin, Robert Smith, Irene Rider and the Nichol family.

Diary Slam

Additionally, this year we would like to invite audience members to read excerpts from historic letters, journals or diaries in their own possession – perhaps a discovery about your own ancestors or the family that once lived in your house!

WARNING: This event is not recommended for those embarking on a New Year’s weight loss regimen! However, it is recommended for those looking to spend an afternoon having fun while learning more about our ancestors who once lived in Delaware County. Please reserve your space by January 19. Cost: $10.00 per person.
