A Canal Towpath and South Canal Street Stroll
Discover the Delaware Canal and one of its neighborhoods
Saturday, October 14 • 2 p.m.
Meet at the Old Library by Lake Afton
46 West Afton Avenue, Yardley,
Come with us as we follow the Delaware Canal towpath from Afton Avenue to Lock 5 and then head west to explore South Canal Street, a not-so-hidden Yardley Borough neighborhood.
A special stop will be the historic AME Church, now known as Gather Place. Conservator Shirley Lee Corsey will tell how, in just one year, the once dilapidated building has been transformed into a museum and performance space with bigger plans to come. The opportunity to see the church interior and exhibits about Yardley’s Black community is a treat.
Susan Taylor will lead this 2-mile roundtrip walk pointing out sites and sharing stories along the way.
A donation of $10 per person is requested for the tour. To reserve your spot, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 215-208-1154.
