Working at the Allentown State Hospital farm in Weaversville

Friday, February 10, 2017 by CURATOR, ATLAS CEMENT COMPANY MEMORIAL MUSEUM in Columns

Recently, I had the pleasure of renewing an old friendship with a gentleman who I worked for 25 years ago at the Allentown State Hospital farm. Many East Allen residents know him as a dedicated fireman at the East Allen Township Fire Company. His name: Mr. John McDevitt.

John was raised in Feasterville, Bucks County, and graduated from Father Judge High School. He later earned an agricultural degree from Penn State University. The young man gained employment as assistant farm manager at the Weaversville farm.
