Author Talk with Leona Baker

October 28 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Leona Baker, a Garden Spot Village resident since August 2021, spent nearly eight years researching and recording 250 years of educational history in Salisbury Township. A member of the Salisbury Township Historical Society, Leona’s research included hundreds of interviews and countless hours poring through historic documents as she pieced together the history of the public schools which were built in what is now part of Pequea Valley School District. She recently published her stories in her book, “How They Learned Their ABC’s.” 

Join us as Leona talks about her extensive research and shares stories of the public one-room schools that once educated the children who lived in Salisbury Township.
