Start Time:
10:00 AM
Dwight Haldeman will present a 45-minute lecture on “Why the Gruber Wagonworks is Important”. His experience running a farm, practicing architecture and volunteering as a Wagonworks guide will be leveraged to offer reasons why this generally overlooked Berks County landmark is a profoundly significant historical artifact. Is it the German heritage, is it the evolution of family businesses during the industrialization of America, is it the Gruber’s participation in the revolution of wheel design, or is it simply the Wagonworks survival?  Tours of the Wagonworks will be available following the presentation, as they are every Thursday through Sunday during the season.
FREE and open to the public.
