Celebrate our newest Federal Holiday, Juneteenth on Satruday, June 17 from 11:00 am to noon by joining  the Reverend David Jackson here at the NHS Library to hear the story of the founding of the Mt. Bethel AME (African Methodist-Episcopal) Church in Buckingham Township. The  Mt. Gilead congregation was formed in the 1820s by free people of African descent, as well as those who escaped slavery on the Underground Railroad. This is a family program and is appropriate for children as well as adults.  So join us and celebrate our American heritage of freedom of the individual.
