The historic Dennis Farm honored for African-American History Month
Posted on Wed, Feb 27, 2013
On Tuesday, February 26, the Marcellus Shale Coalition (MSC), in partnership with its member Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation, hosted an African-American History Month event honoring the historic Dennis Farm at the African American Museum in Philadelphia. 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 seven generations been owned and preserved by the Dennis Family. It affords a stunning glimpse into the lives of free African Americans over the last two centuries and the agricultural legacy of the region. ( Al B. For / Philly.com )
