Chase away the winter blahs and visit the Delaware County Historical Association on Saturday afternoon, January 18 for an afternoon of sundry and delectable delights. At 2 pm members of the museum staff will begin reading from a variety of historic diaries and narratives – all drawn from the museum’s collections.
