Canal Hike Planned

As promised, a canal hike in the Malvern/Oneida area has been planned to follow up on the October 18 presentation hosted by the Malvern Historical Society.

The hike is free and open to all.

When: Saturday, December 1, 2018
Rain/snow date will be Saturday, December 8, 2018

Time: 1 p.m. meet.

Where: Meet at Bethlehem Cemetery, Malvern.

Who: Hosted by the Malvern Historical Society and led by canal authoritarian Mr. Doug Bacso.

The December date was chosen in effort to remain close in time frame to the presentation held in October along with decreased vegetation/pests which may be found near the traveled areas.

We will be breaking up the day in to two parts for those who may not be interested for a longer hike. The first part, beginning at 1 p.m. will focus on the area near Bethlehem Cemetery and will not involve much intense walking. The second part for that day is still in the process of being refined and will be announced that day, however, will include longer walk times in possibly overgrown areas heading nearer to Oneida. The entire day is expected to take upwards of two and one-half hours in total and possibly longer.

Those interested in attending, please be ready to walk through possibly muddy areas with potential for briers and uneven terrain. Boots are recommended. Dress warm depending on the weather.

See you there!

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.
