Grace Place
On Friday, January 20, Thomas Wieckowski will be presenting “Making Marathon: A History of Early Wyncote”. This lecture follows the development of the land from William Penn’s green countryside, through Gilded Age resort, to the village for “the rest of us.” Nationally known bee-keepers, international bankers, entrepreneurial congressmen and dabblers in the novel sport of professional baseball made the community we know as Wyncote today.  This presentation is based on the 2009 book Making Marathon by Thomas J. Wieckowski."
