Lehigh Valley Heritage Museum

The Lehigh Valley Heritage Museum's History Expo, held on Saturday, March 31, 2007 at the Heritage Center, was a huge success. Many historical and preservation entities and organizations were present to make visitors aware of the history preservation efforts in the area.

Among those with displays and representatives to talk about their particular historical site, event or association was the Union and West End Cemetery. Below are a few photographs taken at the event.

Congratulations to Joe Garrera and the entire staff of the Lehigh Valley Heritage Museum on a well organized and successful event. The displays were educational and informative. The seminars and talks were also informative and worthwile. If you weren't able to be present for this event, you missed out on a special occassion. Those that were present are richer for the experience.
