In 1986, the Hopewell Valley Historical Society was the fortunate recipient of seven hundred 4" x 5" glass-plate negatives taken by Mr. George H. Frisbie. These images capture Pennington—its people, places, and changes—between 1890 and 1915, the first 25 years of Pennington Borough as an incorporated town. The Silva Gallery is proud to host the first public exhibition of this collection. Included in the show are vintage photographs of our beloved Wesley Alumni House and a rare action shot of Pennington Seminary football. All are warmly invited to a special reception on April 1, 2015. This reception will be the first event of many that will mark the 125th Anniversary of Pennington Borough’s incorporation.
