As part of its mission to promote and interpret the history of Montgomery County, we’re announcing a new series of programs. The Making History Greater series features scholars, authors, and historians who are currently working on telling new stories about the complexity of our region’s history.

This new series features current research into the greater Philadelphia region, particularly those stories that change the way we tell our history or have implications in the way we see the current world around us.

The presentations will be held at 1654 DeKalb Street in Norristown, PA. Thursday presentations begin at 5:00 with a social gathering and light refreshments. Lectures begin at 5:30 and last for about an hour with time for questions at the end. Saturday presentations begin at 12:30 with a social gathering and light refreshments and lecture starting at 1:00. This program is free and open to the public.

The Making History Greater series begins on Thursday, January 21, 2016 when Michael Mackintosh of Ursinus College presents, A Changing World: How Environmental Change Affected Relationships Between Indians and Colonists in the Philadelphia Area in the Seventeenth Century.
