The board members of the Lititz Historical Foundation will hold their annual meeting on Saturday, November 15th at 1:30pm at the Lititz Public Library. After a few items of business, the public is invited to hear local author Richard Martin, as he presents a program entitled “The Ironmasters of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.” Martin will discuss local iconic businessmen Henry Stiegel, Robert Coleman, The Grubbs, Henry Watts, and many others. Through slides and a lecture, Martin will convey the importance that these men played in the early culture of the iron industry in Southeastern Pennsylvania. After the program, Martin will be selling and signing copies of his new book, which focuses on this subject. For those not able to attend the lecture, copies are also available at the Lititz Historical Foundation’s gift shop.
The event is free and open to the public. The library is wheelchair accessible. Please call the Lititz Historical Foundation at 717-627-4636 with any questions, or visit them on Facebook.
