DFCLT President Denise Dennis will be a guest speaker at Luzerne County Community College’s Annual History Conference, Nanticoke, PA, on
October 6, 2017.

The widow and daughter of Robert Bone, PhD, a professor at Columbia University Teachers College in New York for thirty years, have donated 100 books from his collection of books on African American literature, history and culture to the Dennis Farm Charitable Land Trust. There will be an exhibition about the books at the Fifth Annual DF Symposium.


The purpose of The Dennis Farm Charitable Land Trust is to develop the Dennis Farm into an educational and cultural site for scholars, researchers, educators, cultural heritage tourists, school groups and others interested in this extraordinary history.


The Dennis Farm Charitable Land Trust is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization. We appreciate all donations. Your tax-deductible gift will help us meet our goals: to preserve the 200 year-old Dennis Farm and share its extraordinary story, restore the farmhouse to historic specifications, construct an interpretative center to welcome visitors, and develop educational programs.
