In partnership with the National Iron and Steel Museum, meet America’s first Woman Industrialist, Rebecca Lukens (portrayed by Susannah Brody).  Step back in time when the U.S. was new and industrialization was gaining momentum.  In Q and A format, ask Rebecca Lukens about the challenge of being a woman in charge of the Brandywine Ironworks, forerunner to Coatesville's Lukens Steel, and how she literally influenced the engines of progress. The program is free for the community to enjoy but an RSVP is required by October 15 as space is limited to 75 attendees, available on a first come first served basis! RSVP to rsvp@chestercohistorical.org. 

History on Tap brings history to you in the casual atmosphere of your favorite local bar or restaurant. There will be lots of great food and drink available for purchase. The program is free for the community to enjoy! Generously sponsored by Susquehanna Bank, and WCHE 1520AM. The portable sound system is sponsored by Colleen and Basel Frens.
