Pennsylvania’s Wissahickon Valley Region: A Story Worth Telling

Hello Everyone!
My name is Yen Ho, and I’ve been a member of the Wissahickon Valley Historical Society for 3 years. I am currently a graduate student at Drexel University, pursuing a Master’s degree in
Library and Information Science.
Prior to Drexel, I earned my Bachelor’s degree in historic preservation. I always have a curiosity about my hometown in Ambler (technically I live in Whitpain Township). What sparked my curiosity was the old buildings/homes that are still standing today in the Wissahickon Valley (Ambler, Whitpain, and Lower Gwynedd).
I want to know their history, and whether or not they should be recognized.
I have a history background, and I have the opportunity to express it through my research in my blog.
