Michael Showalter, museum educator at the historic Ephrata Cloister, will present, “Room Enough for Them All,” on October 21, at 3 o'clock p.m. in historic Boehm's Chapel, 13 West Boehms Road, Willow Street. The PowerPoint program will examine the diverse cultures and religious denominations found throughout Lancaster County as early as 1750. To quote, Showalter, “Colonial Lancaster County was one of the most diverse places in all of the Americas. In this mix of cultures, dissident religious minorities of Europe were intended to live among Native Americans in peace.” Showalter, who holds a Master of Arts degree from Penn State University in American Studies, will touch on a variety of resident groups, including the English, Scots-Irish, Germans, Welsh, French Huguenot, and African-Americans, and the area of the county which they called home. Programs at the chapel are free and open to the public. However, donations to offset fees for speakers and musicians are always appreciated.
