Eclipses in Blythewood History

August 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

Join the Blythewood Historical Society for a discussion of solar eclipses visible in our town over the years. Bob Wood will try to reconstruct each eclipse based on our residents and businesses at the time and on our weather each day. But more importantly the talk will give us insights into what Blythewood was like at different points in its history. What was our area like during the total eclipse of the Revolutionary War? How prosperous was Blythewood during the near-total eclipse of 1834? How about the total eclipse George Y. Langford & Sons saw in 1900? How about Roger Wilson’s near-total eclipse in 1951? Do you remember trying to find x-ray film for the near-total eclipse of 1970? Or did you have to poke a hole in a shoebox? Members and their guests are invited.
FOR MEMBERS AND THEIR GUESTS ONLY

 

 

Located at the Blythewood Historical Society in Blythewood, S.C.
