 Calendar Details:
In 1737 four Delaware Chiefs agreed to carry out an old deed
which would allow the sons of William Penn to purchase as much
land as a man could walk in a day and a half. The Chiefs assumed
this would be about 40 miles. Instead James Logan, provincial
secretary, hired runners to run on a path that had been prepared
for them ahead of time, and the one runner to finish the course
traveled 70 miles. The resulting loss to the Native Americans was
over 1.2 million acres.

Speaker Doug Miller has worked for the PHMC for over 20 years,
including time at Graeme Park. He is currently the Site Administrator
at Pennsbury Manor.

Enjoy a continental breakfast, lecture on the walking purchase,
and a hot and cold lunch buffet. Tours of the historic Keith
House will also be available after lunch. Reserved event. $25/
person; $20/members.
