ANNOUNCEMENTS

Endless Mountains Heritage Region to tour the Dennis Farm

The Dennis Farm is pleased to host the Endless Mountains Heritage Region (EMHR) for a private tour of the farm grounds on June 5, 2019. EMHR is one of 12 heritage regions within Pennsylvania’s Heritage Region Program, as designated by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation & Natural Resources.


Museum of the American Revolution

A beautifully carved and signed Revolutionary War powder horn taken from the lifeless body of Gershom Prince, an African American soldier and Dennis family ancestor who was killed in the Battle of Wyoming, the only Revolutionary War battle in Northeast Pennsylvania, is on exhibition at the Museum of the American Revolution for one year.  

 

In the 1950s Edith A. Dennis (1899-1980), who was also the owner of the Dennis Farm, donated the powder horn to the Wyoming Historical Society and Museum in Wilkes-Barre (now the Luzerne County Historical Society). The Gershom Prince powder horn is on loan to the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia for one year. Denise Dennis spoke about the power horn at a press conference and a special reception at the museum.
