sign for quaker falls park in lawrence county pa


This ​program is presented by a Westminster College intern under the direction of Andrew Henley, society board member and president and founder of Pleasant Hills Historians. It is the ​2nd in our series of four virtual programs featuring the work of our student interns.

PRESENTER: Logan Minch, senior History major, Westminster College, PA.

Minch’s work focuses on the newly opened Quaker Falls Recreation area in Edinburg, Pennsylvania. Minch will present some of the artifacts and context about the site.

This internship concentrated on the processing of a recent donation to the historical society from Youngstown State University of all of the archaeological material that was excavated at the site by Dr. John White. The late Dr. White was a former professor at Youngstown State University.



This presentation will be recorded and made available through the Historical Society’s YouTube channel in the coming weeks.
