A farm in Weaversville

Wednesday, February 22, 2017 by CURATOR, ATLAS CEMENT COMPANY MEMORIAL MUSEUM in Columns

In this column, I am continuing to “remember” the Allentown State Hospital farm in Weaversville with Mr. John McDevitt, the former assistant manager.

In 1981, I placed my United States history book in the corner and worked with my former students Gary Krill and Bernie Cesanek on the farm, planting and harvesting during the spring and summer seasons.

Residents know John as a longtime, dedicated East Allen Township firemen.

John shared this history of the farm with me for my readers.
