The City Beautiful Movement in Harrisburg was one of the earliest urban improvement projects in the United States and included the creation of parks and enhancement of roads and sanitation.
Messiah College History majors and Humanities Fellows, Rachel Carey and James Mueller, will discuss this early 20th century movement in the capital city, one of several digital history projects currently being conducted by faculty and students through the Digital Harrisburg Initiative. Join us for what will be an interesting discussion of our capital city as well as how digital technology can enhance our understanding of history and the public humanities.

The Museum's new Education Exhibit debuted during our November meeting. Stop in for an a interesting look at educating the area's children in days gone by.
The band uniforms at left are featured in the collection and highlight just one of the many extra-curricular activities that local students have participated in over the years. Items on display range from the early one-room schoolhouse days to items from Bermudian Springs School District's "new" high school and middle school dedication.
Come see if you can find yourself or your friends & family among the memorabilia!
