2 p.m.
Returns to Historical Society

On Sunday, September 15th, at 2:00 P.M., Fred Meckley, Herndon, PA, returns to the speaker’s podium at the Northumberland County Historical Society to present a talk about Captain Thomas McKee, noted Indian trader, and his relationship to local history. This presentation became a point of departure from Meckley’s presentation last year about lime kilns. Many of the lime kilns are located on or near McKee’s Road, Dalmatia, PA, which was named for McKee.  McKee’s Half Falls is also named for McKee.   Meckley is a 1957 graduate of Mahanoy Joint High School, and his family once owned and operated Meckley’s Limestone Quarry.
