Welcome to the Hummelstown Area Historical Society
The March 18, 2019 meeting of the Hummelstown Area Historical Society will feature Kim Sauerwald speaking on the history and production of Tramp Art, how it became popular and its place in the folk art world of today. Kim is a volunteer with the Society who is passionate about history and culture. Tramp Art is a mainly American genre of art using small pieces of wood, many times from discarded cigar boxes and shipping crates, and whittling these materials into layers of geometric shapes. The outside edges of layers are notch carved. Please plan on attending to learn more about this art form, which can embellish items from mirrors to lamps to tables. The meeting begins at 7:00 pm in the Parish House at the corner of North Rosanna Street and North Alley in Hummelstown. For more information please telephone the Society office at 717-566-6314.
