  FYI. Please see attached flier.
 
  The President of the Dennis Farm Trust, Denise Dennis, and archaeologist Wade Catts will be talking about the history and archeology of the Dennis Farm as part of an upcoming African American History Month event. The program will help raise funds to develop the site as an historical interpretive center.
 
  Situated in the Endless Mountains of Susquehanna County, the Dennis Farm is a unique historic site and environmental resource for Pennsylvania and beyond. The 153-acre farm, purchased in 1793 by Prince Perkins, a free African American, has for over 200 years and 7 generations been owned and preserved by the Dennis
  Family. It affords a stunning glimpse into not only the lives of free African Americans over the last two centuries, but also of the agricultural legacy of the region
