Columbia Historic Preservation Society (CHiPS) president, Chris Vera, was a featured presenter at yesterday’s 50 plus EXPO at Spooky Nook yesterday.
His presentation, “Building a Historic Foundation in Columbia,” was listed in the program this way:
“Founded as Wright’s Ferry in 1726 and in 1788 as Columbia, the town was named after Christopher Columbus in the hopes of being our nation’s capital. The Quakers of Columbia not only set precedence in equality, freeing many fugitive slaves, but also revitalized industry and transportation for the betterment of Lancaster County. Join Christopher to learn about this historic town and play along with trivia during his presentation!”
Chris also staffed an exhibit table at the event which attracted over a thousand persons to visit with exhibitors, receive free health screenings, and attend seminars and entertainment events.
