Goschenhoppen Folk Festival

A little over a week ago I was introduced to this amazing festival. This is their 52nd one. I wasn’t sure what to expect. But I was totally delighted with the overall friendly nature of all of the volunteers. The people are more than glad to chat with you and explain the specifics of their reenactments. Goschenhoppen is one of the oldest continuously existing Pennsylvania German communities in America.  This geographic region occupies a small corner of southeastern Pennsylvania in Montgomery County. The event is put on by The Goschenhoppen Historians, Inc. which is organized to identify, preserve and disseminate the Pennsylvania German (Pennsylvania Dutch) folk culture and history of the Goschenhoppen region. The Folk Festival is designed as an educational family event to demonstrate various home skills and trades of the Goschenhoppen area from about 1750-1880. I will definitely be putting this on my calendar for next year.

National Museum of Industrial History

A little over a week ago I had the opportunity to shoot at the National Museum of Industrial History (NMIH) located on the former Bethlehem Steel property in Bethlehem, PA. This was an incredible experience. The staff was extremely helpful during the couple of hours we were shooting. Their web site indicates their purpose is to tell the story of America’s Industrial achievements and the accomplishments of its inventors, managers and preserve the record of industry’s development and advancements from the middle 1800’s until present time.
