New discoveries about the First Presbyterian Church Burial Grounds are revealed in the first installment of the Brackbill Lecture Series at the Snyder Academy.
Join us for a fascinating presentation about Elizabethtown’s diverse community in the first two centuries of its history. Snyder Academy Research Fellow and Brown University student Sean Briody will share his original research about the families that founded the city in 1664, the community of free and enslaved African-Americans who lived in Elizabethtown and the social and economic ties that bound together and divided the community in its early years. The program will include a tour of selected sites in the burial grounds of the First Presbyterian Church in Elizabeth. A reception with refreshments will follow the presentation and tour.
Please RSVP to Elliot Dee at Elliot@acadenj.org by January 10.
