Village Stories: Memories and Lore from Waynesboro’s Surrounding Communities

May 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Hawley Memorial Presbyterian Church on Charmian Road in Blue Ridge Summit, Pa.

Spotlight on Blue Ridge Summit, Pa. 

Part of a series of programs, Village Stories: Memories and Lore from Waynesboro’s Surrounding Communities.

Presented in partnership with the Waynesboro Historical Society, the program is an opportunity to learn about village life and times through shared reminiscences.

Current and former residents of the Blue Ridge Summit area are invited to attend and share their memories and stories.

Anyone interested in learning about this fascinating mountaintop village are also invited to attend.

During the 19th and early 20th centuries, Blue Ridge Summit was a thriving summer resort for wealthy visitors from nearby cities like Baltimore and Washington, D.C. It remains a vital and active mountaintop community. Historical roots are deep and many families living there today had ancestors who were involved in the early life of the village.

This program is underwritten in part by Marge Kiersz, Lucinda D. Potter, CPA, and Smith, Elliott, Kearns & Company, and an anonymous donor, in honor of the life and work of Eunice Statler.

Additional support provided by The Institute’s Today’s Horizon Fund contributors: The Nora Roberts Foundation; The John R. Hershey Jr. and Anna L. Hershey Family Foundation; APX Enclosures, Inc.; and the Carolyn Terry Eddy Family: Carolyn, with daughters Connie Fleagle & Kim Larkin.
