Hotels of Bradford County to be presented at the Bradford County Historical Society, September 16

The Bradford County Historical Society will host a free program entitled "Hotels of Bradford County" scheduled for Friday, September 16, 2011 at 6 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Although the event is free, participants are asked to register by calling 570-265-2240 or by email at info@bradfordhistory.com.

Over 100 years ago, most towns in Bradford County, whether large or small, had a prominent building in the center of the community that served as a hotel. These buildings provided overnight accommodations for visiting family as well as stage coach travelers.

This program will discuss some of the well known hotels such as Minnequa Springs and some of the lesser known hotels throughout the county. This PowerPoint presentation will be accompanied by approximately 100 photos.

The program will be presented by Matthew Carl, manager/curator at the Bradford County Historical Society.

This program is part of the 2011 "Friday Night at the Museum" programming series that is held the third Friday of each month from May through October. Each event is held in the Great Room at the Bradford County Historical Society, located at 109 Pine Street, Towanda, PA. Free refreshments are provided at each program and the museum is open prior to the event.

Other Friday Night at the Museum programs scheduled for 2011 include: Deserter Country: Civil War Opposition in Pennsylvania, October 21.
