September

20th  1pm Ed Henning will speak on the Geology and Industry of Northampton County

IMG_0473

The Lehigh Valley has an incredibly rich industrial history. That legacy is due to the geology of our region. Explore the “Geology of Northampton County” on Saturday, September 20, beginning 1pm,when archeologist/geologist Ed Henning shares his research on our geologic resources. These resources were found and used for centuries- from the tools made and used by the Lenape, to those mined to become the roots of our industrial revolution. The natural resources of Northampton County supplied us with new industries, population, and economic growth at the county, state, national, and global level. This talk is open to the public, and free with museum admission.

As you see in the illustration above, Mr. Henning, a collections volunteer and docent of the Northampton County Historical & Genealogical Society, captures everyone’s imagination and interest!  Ed has also provided the inspiration  that will soon result in a new Industrial Exhibit at the museum. Roots of Industry will open in October, 2014.
