Schedule of porch talks at historic YorkCo train depots!
Do like local history? How about sitting outside of a historic train station on a warm summer evening listening to fascinating local stories from interesting speakers and living historians in period clothing? If so, I have a venue and a series of events for you to consider!
The Friends of the Heritage Rail Trail have released their 2019 schedule of “porch talks.” All are free to the public. Bring a folding chair and your questions! Free parking; free attendance!
