The Institute announces the third in a series of programs, Village Stories: Memories and Lore from Waynesboro’s Surrounding Communities, on Monday, May 15 at 7 p.m. Admission is free and all are welcome.

Arranged in partnership with the Waynesboro Historical Society and Quincy Township, the program will spotlight Quincy Village, and take place in the Quincy Township Municipal Building, 7575 Mentzer Gap Rd, Waynesboro, Pa.

“This series is an opportunity to learn about village life and times through the reminiscences and memories of residents,” said Pam Rowland, event organizer and Institute director of education. 

“Any current or former residents of Quincy Village—and including the surrounding communities of Blue Rock, Fairview and Fox Hill—are invited to attend and share their memories and stories.”

The Rev. Lee Daywalt, a Quincy Township supervisor and local historian will join the discussion led by Institute education director, Pam Hind Rowland. 

The Quincy Township Heritage Park Historical Society created a museum inside the township building, preserving and documenting the village’s long history. The town was originally built up primarily by German immigrants, and a post office has been in operation in Quincy since 1830. 

Quincy Orphanage and Home provided care to generations of children in need. The orphanage opened in 1903 under the auspices of the United Brethren Church, and operated until 1971.
