Family History Tour and Workshop

Donations welcome. Reservations recommended, limited to 15 participants. Call 267.502.2990 to reserve your spot. Walk-ins welcome as space permits.

In honor of Family History Month (October), Glencairn is hosting a family history tour and workshop. Begin the day with a tour of the family symbolism created in stone, wood, and glass mosaic for the castle-like home of Raymond and Mildred Pitcairn in the 1930s. Then bring your own favorite item for “Show and Tell a Treasure of Your Family,” a special workshop led by Judith McDowell, family historian and board member of the Association of Personal Historians. Items could include a family heirloom or a photograph, a family Bible or other book, clothing or even toys—any memorable object you would like to share with the group is welcome.
