Happy Hour with the Historian: The History of Willow Grove

Happy Hour with the Historian: The History of Willow Grove

More About Happy Hour with the Historian: The History of Willow Grove

Speaker Heather Greenleaf, author of An Imperfection in the Kitchen Floor, will talk about everyday life in Willow Grove from 1910-1925, including the history of Willow Grove Park and the development and architecture of the neighborhoods. She’ll also cover locals who served in WWI and the terrible train wreck in Bryn Athyn that changed the railroad laws forever.

An Imperfection in the Kitchen Floor tells the story of two women who, despite living one hundred years apart, face similar sacrifices, difficult decisions, and self-imposed perfection that many women will recognize in their own lives. Set in Willow Grove, Heather will draw on her research for her presentation.

Heather has degrees in Art History and the Culinary Arts. She currently works as an Exhibitions Manager, and in her free time, she is the Archivist for the Upper Moreland Historical Association. An Imperfection in the Kitchen Floor is her debut novel.

$5 cover plus cash bar. Snacks provided.
