In 1977 Dick Nissley and his son John opened Nissley Vineyards in Bainbridge, PA and established the Pennsylvania Wine Association. The Nissley family has played an important role in the history of Elizabethtown since the 18th century. Wine sampling will be included with refreshments. Join us for an evening of wine, cheese and crackers, and history.

The Little Red Schoolhouse was built as a firehouse about 1860. Through the years it has been used as a school, scout house, recreation center, dwelling, auto body shop, storage shed, and during the Civil War, as Borough Council chambers. The restored building, in its new role as a museum, is again a center of education as it helps us to remember our heritage.
