While I wasn't born and raised in Malvern, I live here now and love the area. I'm interested in history in general and of this area, which is quite fascinating.

  1. This was an excellent program by the Historical Society. Doug did a fantastic job of explaining the past 8000 years or so of the area. Great turn out for the program and nice to see the cooperation between the Malvern and Minerva groups.

    1. We were quite pleased as well, Dave; glad you were able to make it for the evening. Thank you for your kind words.
