The Jefferson Educational Society presents The Untold Story of the Soldiers and Sailors Home with Micheal Furhrman, M.S.A.

The Pennsylvania Soldiers and Sailors home at the foot of Ash Street was built in 1886 as a Marine Hospital to care for ailing veterans of the Civil War. It also served briefly and controversially as the manager of Presque Isle before the state rebuilt and opened today’s home. Its complicated history may surprise most residents. Find out more as Michael Fuhrman unpacks its story.
