2018 – The Many Faces of the Cocalico Valley Exhibit

This special exhibit, “The Many Faces of the Cocalico Valley.” The exhibition is designed to both recognize and celebrate the countless men and women who inhabited the Cocalico Valley and contributed in a variety of ways to its development over the centuries.

This exhibit, through the use of photographic portraits and artistic portraiture, presents only a sampling of the people who in their own personal way contributed to the development of the boroughs of Adamstown, Akron, Denver and Ephrata, and the townships of Clay, Ephrata, East Cocalico, West Cocalico, West Earl and the portion of Earl Township included in the Society’s scope.

A special feature of the exhibit will be a display of memorabilia from the military career of Ephrata native General William Thomas Hobbins, USAF, Retired, the only 4-star general to come out of the Cocalico Valley.

The  exhibit is open through the end of December 2018. The museum is open Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. or by special arrangements.
