Speaker Series: Centralia -- PA's Lost Town

Overview
Locations

Come to the Maple Shade Barn on Thursday, September 20th at 7pm to hear filmmaker Joe Sapienza discuss his documentary "Centralia: Pennsylvania's Lost Town." The Centralia mine fire started over half a century ago in the summer of 1962 at the southern tip of Columbia County. It's still burning today — and experts say it could burn for decades to come. The underground fire has forced almost an entire town, with a population of more than one thousand in 1980, to flee. There will be an opportunity to ask questions of the filmmaker and to buy a signed DVD. This event is free.
