Lantern Tours are back for October!

October has always been a special month for the Mercer County Historical Society and the MCHS Civil War Roundtable.  Each year for the last eight years, Bill Philson, MCHS Executive Director, has led tours of Mercer Borough and its cemeteries, focusing on various aspects of the Civil War, the Underground Railroad, and enjoying the great fall air.  On the Wednesday evenings of October 16, 23, and 30, we will depart from the Society’s headquarters at 7 PM and should return around 9 PM.  Bring a lantern or a flashlight so you can watch your step—the tour will be dark in places.  We will be walking in excess of a mile and a half—so bring your walking shoes!  People who cannot walk that distance will be able to meet us at the various stops.  Donations will be accepted to benefit the Old Mercer Cemetery and the Western Pennsylvania Civil War Reenactors Society.  Please check our website, www.mchspa.org, in case of inclement weather.
