Join University Archivist Emeritus and American historian Mark Lloyd for an audience-centered discussion of the history and progression of the quality of life in Bradford County and go home with a rich appreciation of change over time for the better. Come prepared to ask your own questions, to offer your own ideas, and to reflect on where they fit in a broad assessment of calling Bradford County home, then and now.
Presented by Matthew Carl, BCHS Executive Director. One hundred people witnessed an attorney murder a man during the day in front of the post office in Raleigh, North Carolina, in 1903. If that isn’t strange enough, after a trial, the jury found the murderer NOT guilty. This event was the result of a love affair of sorts, but the story is not what you think. The woman, who was the reason for the murder, and her young child, came to Bradford County, Pennsylvania, to live in seclusion near Canton – and this is just the beginning of the story.
