ANNUAL MEETING DECEMBER 3rd

Georgetown Historical Society will hold its Annual Meeting on Wednesday, December 3rd at 7 PM in the Georgetown Library Meeting Room. Following a brief business meeting, Rick Detwiller will give a special presentation on “Public Houses of Georgetown.”

Throughout its history, Georgetown has been home to numerous Inns, Hotels and Taverns, including our own Brocklebank Musuem, which was a tavern in the 1700s. Join us for a fascinating slide show and talk on these early businesses and their importance to the town.
