The Historical Society of Montgomery County is pleased to announce that it will be hosting an Ice Cream Sundae Social on Sunday, July 23, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at Historic Montgomery Cemetery, 1 Hartranft Avenue, West Norriton Township.
The event will feature live music by Matthew Dodd, who will play 100 Years of Summertime Songs on a variety of instruments - guitar, banjo & others. These will be great sing-a-long songs creating an ideal atmosphere to socialize with friends, family, and neighbors while enjoying one of summer's special treats - ice cream! We will also be offering opportunities to play some vintage lawn games. Bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on. Bowls of ice cream will be $5 each with a variety of toppings available.
With almost 6,000 known burials, Historic Montgomery Cemetery holds the remains of some of the most prominent citizens, veterans, and reformers in the county and nation. From five Civil War generals to many captains of industry, it tells the story of the nation through the lives it represents. The entrance to Montgomery Cemetery is at the end of Hartranft Avenue, off West Main Street, Norristown. Parking during the event will be made available inside the Cemetery gates.
