Vogenberger Slides to be shown at September meeting
Edward
and Marguerite Vogenberger
were fixtures of Langhorne Borough tending their farm on
North Green Street where they grew fruits and vegetables and raised chickens. When not busy on
the farm, they traveled extensively taking photographs of their trips and amassing a collection of
some 5000 slides on the edges of which they wrote detailed notes. Following their tragic murder
on March 14, 1976, their collection of slides was donated to HLA.
On Monday, September 24 at 7:30 pm
, HLA will present some of these slides at our general
meeting. They will include slides taken around the farm, slides of the many covered bridges they
visited and pictures of homes and buildings around Langhorne as they appeared over 70 years ago
(see page 4 for some samples of photographs from the collection).
These meetings are
open to the public

held at HLA’s headquarters in the Anna
Mary Williamson Library, 160 W. Maple Ave., Langhorne

Historic Langhorne Ghost Tours to Return in October

HLA’s Annual Fall Ghost Tours will take place on Friday and Saturday evenings during October. The tours begin at the Old Library and proceed through the Borough with stops outside various houses where the guides tell stories of local ghostly experiences mixed with some history of the town. Tours last about an hour and our limited to about 20 people per tour. Tickets should be purchased in advance.

HLA is always looking for more tour guides to help in this fundraising effort. If you think you might be interested, please contact Jim Maier by email or phone at HLA.

 

 

 


In case you have wondered why we have the caution tape around the sides of our building, this article that appeared in the Bucks County Courier Times will explain it.
