Learn about Pennsylvania's abandoned homes on Wednesday, Nov. 10.

Chester County History Center is offering a virtual discussion on Abandoned Pennsylvania: Ruins of the Family Dream. It happens from 7-8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 10. The stories that abandoned homes tell captivate Robyn and Michael Hodgson. Over the past six years of traveling the Northeast and exploring hundreds of abandoned locations, they have learned there is not one reason people vacate their homes. Then, there are the historical properties, mansions from the Colonial Era to the Victorian Era, still rich with ornate architectural splendor forsaken to decay. Robyn and Michael pay homage to the lost lives and the lost dreams that these homes represent with their photographs. This is a pay-as-you-wish event but registration is required. Reserve a spot here.
