Join historian/storyteller, Bill May, for the fascinating and heart warming story of the creation of McConnells Mill State Park through the lives and friendship of Civil War Captain Thomas McConnell and Mose Wharton, a freed slave from North Carolina. Bill May will detail the Civil War service of McConnell and how Mose Wharton went from being born a slave on a southern plantation, to spending 72 years helping the McConnell family operate and preserve one of Western Pennsylvania’s most beautiful state parks.
