About the Meeting:
The Lower Paxton Township Historic Committee is changing its name to Lower Paxton Township Historical Commission.  We invite residents to attend our monthly meetings and help us form a strong foundation.  One of our primary objectives is education about the township’s rich history and we hope to provide something of educational value at every monthly meeting.   During our June meeting Eric Kessler will be presenting the history of one of the oldest farms in Lower Paxton Township. He will tell the history of the Running Pump Farm from the 1725 start through all the families and up today, as it is still being farmed.  The public is welcome and there is no  charge for this presentation.
Please come and join us for this informational meeting Thursday June 7, 2018, 6 PM at the Lower Paxton Municipal Center 425 Prince St.  Lower Paxton Township, PA.


Public is welcome. Free of charge.
