Guided tours of the Johnson Victrola Museum will highlight the female artists who recorded for the Victor Talking Machine Company accompanied by 78-rpm recordings played on authentic talking machines. Early phonographs and recordings chronicle the developments of the sound recording industry and the achievements of E.R. Johnson, founder of the Victor Talking Machine Company.
Hear state park archaeologists discuss the results of the most recent excavation at Brandywine Creek. Digging at what has been known as the “Wilson Tenant House,” has unearthed lots of artifacts, but now there are even more questions about how the park’s land was used historically. Enjoy this fun learning experience, and find out how you can get involved at the next excavation.
The class consists of an illustrated talk by archaeologist Rachel Marks, and will allow participants to get “hands-on” with the artifacts. For more information, please contact Rachel Marks, Rachel. firstname.lastname@example.org or (412) 609-1294. Free
