Knoebels Amusement Park – A free admission, old-fashioned amusement park, which charges by the ride. It’s a good value for families. Swimming and golfing are also available. Check it out at www.knoebels.com
Arch Street Meeting House was the starting point for the 2018 Interfaith Walk for Peace and Reconciliation on April 29, 2018.
