One of my new passions, and I am getting pretty good at it is Spot the Station. With the help of NASA, you can type in your location by city/town, state and country and they will tell you the next time the International Space Station will be passing overhead. You can also sign up for text alerts. The only basic skill you need to possess is knowing your NSEW directions. 🚀

June 12 "The Lazaretto", History Talk given by Barbara Selletti presented by the Nether Providence Historical Society 7:30 p.m. at the Helen Kate Furness Library. 😷
Long before Ellis Island, there was Lazaretto Where Route 420 ends at the Delaware River, you'll find Lazaretto. Considered both the oldest surviving quarantine hospital and the last surviving example of its type in the United States, it was built by the newly-created Board of Health after the Yellow Fever Epidemic of 1793 killed off one tenth of Philadelphia's population. Thereafter, every vessel headed toward the port of Philadelphia first stopped at Lazaretto. Later, it was the home of the Philadelphia Athletic Club, then a flight school during World War I and then a seaplane base. Speaker Barbara Selletti will paint a vivid picture of Lazaretto's long and fascinating history at Helen Kate Furness Library in Wallingford.
