Historic Deed Book Restoration Project
August 25, 2019 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$5
Durham Historical Society is proud to announce that our guest speaker on Sunday, August 25th will be Robin Robinson, Bucks County Recorder of Deeds. Robin took office in January, 2018, and soon discovered over 500 historic deed books deteriorating in a county warehouse. She created the Historic Deed Book Restoration Project, attracted contributions from local businesses and individuals and proceeded to get the books restored to their former condition. Samples of the books have been on display in various locations in the county and Robin will be bringing several volumes to Durham on the 25th. An accomplished presenter, Robin will be explaining how and why the deeds were formatted and will bring some specific samples of deeds relating to the immediate Durham area. The presentation will begin at 2:00 p.m. in the Durham Mill. Members free. Non-members $5.00. Light refreshments will be served following the presentation and you will have a chance to ask questions of the presenter.
