Gnadenhutten Memorial Ceremony

March 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

On Thursday, March 8 from 10am-11am, the public is invited to join the Gnadenhutten Museum & Historical Site in memorializing the 28 men, 29 women, and 39 children massacred by Pennsylvania militiamen on March 8, 1782. Years later, missionary John Heckewelder collected the remains of the Lenape and burried them in a mound on the southern side of the village. A memorial stands there today.

A member of the Delaware nation will be the speaker for the event, and afterwards there will be a kickoff for the Christian Cross Project.
