People, Places and Unsung Heroes of Northern Chester County

Speaker series by The Mill at Anselma

The Mill at Anselma will host local author, Catherine Quillman, as their monthly speaker. She will introduce the audience to the history of the people and places of northern Chester County, a region distinctly different from the Quaker-dominated southern Chester County. Catherine, a former resident of “Ludwig’s Corner,” will show rare photographs from her collection and speak on a range of people, including the early photographer, Octavius Bull. The Bull family also included Levi Bull, who helped establish many of the area’s Episcopal Churches. Her talk will also touch upon the contributions of the early Irish settlers, German tavern owners and the Welsh road-builders. More recent history will include the residents who lost their homes to eminent domain during the creation of Marsh Creek Lake in the late 1960s. This event will be held in Bell Hall at Montgomery School, 1141 Kimberton Road, Chester Springs. It will begin at 6:30pm with a wine & cheese reception, followed by the evening’s topic at 7:00pm. Tickets may be purchased at the door for $5. Members of the Mill at Anselma attend free of charge.
