Wharton Tour Dec. 5, Sunday and Griffith Morgan Correction

The Batsto Citizens Committee, Inc. is presenting The Wharton Homes of the Gilded Age, Sunday, Dec. 5 at the Batsto Visitors' Center Auditorium at 1:00 until 3:00.  The Wharton family owned three mansions, one at Batsto, another in Philadelphia and a third in Rhode Island.  The Chair of the Batsto Committee, Bill Schaal, will give a talk followed by a tour of the Batsto mansion which will be decorated for the holidays.  The cost for the lecture, the tour, and refreshments is only $10.  Some of my friends and I plan to go early and have a hike in the woods.  See you there!

Correction:  Robert Fisher-Hughes, head of the Pennsauken Historical Society which manages the two beautiful houses, Griffith Morgan House off River Road, and Burrough Dover House, off Haddonfield Road, in Pennsauken, contacted me to update the contact information which was from an old brochure.
