Councilman Weiner Sponsors "First Family Oral History" Event on 2/23/08
Jonathan Husband, a county Department of Special Services official, (second from left) said an effort will be made to name the road through Talley-Day Park in honor of Harlan Day, the last owner of the farmhouse which stood where the park's soccer fields are today. Councilman Robert Weiner displays a photograph of the house while Harlan Day's son, Jack Day, (right) and James Hanby, a local-history authority, listen approvingly. Husband also told attenders at a seminar where stories of several families prominent in Brandywine Hundred history were discussed that the house on park property last owned by the late Edith Talley could be preserved if a prospective resident curator comes forward. Weiner sponsored the two-and-a-half-hour seminar in the branch library located in the park on Feb. 23.
