During the cold winter months when things are often quiet at the Historic Ephrata Cloister, there is always activity on Thursday mornings as participants gather to enjoy the Winter History Class. With the concern for everyone’s health and safety, the historic site is currently closed, but the learning opportunities provided in this nine-week series will continue virtually this year! The schedule of presentations includes talks on Pennsylvania German illuminated manuscripts, house blessings, distant historic communities, fascinating history, and some colorful characters from the past.
Winter History Class begins on February 4 and continues each Thursday through April 1. Each morning includes two sessions starting at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. respectively. Advance registration is required. Tuition for the nine-week program is $45 for each computer link for members of the Ephrata Cloister Associates. For people not yet a member, the tuition is $55. Attendance for one day is $10. Participants will need to download the free Zoom software to view the program. Each week registrants will receive the Zoom link to attend the program. The full schedule of presentations and details about registration can be found at: https://ephratacloister.org/winter-history-class-2021/
Winter History Class is a program supported by the Ephrata Cloister Associates, the non-profit organization that works in partnership with the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission to share the stories of the National Historic Landmark, which preserves the place where Ephrata began.
