President Pumping Engine with Mark Connar
February 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
In 1872, one of the world’s largest stationary engines was put into operation just south of Bethlehem, PA at the Friedensville Zinc Mines. Today, the massive stone Cornish engine house still remains. Mark Connar will tell us how he dove into the President Pump’s history and is working with the township, property owner, and a larger coalition to preserve the site and its industrial heritage.
