Having a resource like the Tredyffrin Easttown Historical Society provides a bridge to the past. This 501(c) (3) Not for profit corporation preserves and shares our local history. 

The society hosts public meetings that feature presentations by qualified speakers on a wide variety of subjects. They publish the Tredyffrin Easttown History Quarterly a richly illustrated local history publication provided to members by mail and available for purchase at selected local distributors like Easttown Library. But, probably the gem is the comprehensive website, www.TEHistory.org, this contains a searchable online archive of the History Quarterly and the society's collection of images, as well as in depth resources for historical research on local townships,and news about activities and programs. The society also house a local history archive, providing controlled storage and a research faciliy for the collection of photographs, documents, manuscripts, books and other artifacts.

Membership, is only $50.00 per household or you can becomea Patron for $150.00. Membership porovides essential support for the Society's efforts to preserve our past through maintenance and expansion of the photograph and document archives, the ongoing development of the website and other programs.

The society can be contacted via mail to Tredyffrin Easttown Historical Society, 720 First Avenue, Berwyn PA 19312 or through the website TEHistory.org where you can sign up for the free email newsletter and get the latest information on programs and activities.

I took this photo on Wednesday, see paragraph below, of the wonderful light outside what was the Berwyn National Bank, now Malvern Federal, originally started by several local businessmen including one of the Fritzes from the lumberyard across the road.

I got first hand experience of the depth of resources and knowledge this past Wednesday when our local Business Association hosted three members of the Tredyffrin Easttown Historical Society, who gave us a short tour of Berwyn Village. Then we visited La Cabra Brewing on Lancaster Avenue, discussed their building and looked oveer some of the historical photos they shared of the aurrounding area to the village of Berwyn. It really showed how the area has changed over time and gave the realization that nothing remains the same as we see with the ongoing development efforts in the Village of Berwyn with Fritz Lumber, Berwyn Square and the old Mack Oil site as well. Each of these if completed will bring change and photos taken today will be looked at in the future, maybe from the database held by the Society for future generations.

I’m thinking that this is the way a 501(c)(3) should be done. Love and light and all the best!
