Final Effort

Posted 7/12/2017 1:36pm by John Weygandt.

254 years ago Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon made their last push westward to complete measuring the boundary between Maryland and Pennsylvania. By 1767 they were nearly across the length of the border when events transpired which halted their effort.

This year a new book has been published which elaborates on these events and reveals more of the human interest side of the story, BOUNDARIES by Sally M. Walker. These facets will be revealed by the obscure but well versed raconteur, the proprietor of Stargazers Vineyard. One review of the book describes it as appealing to historical minded scientists. Who better to fill this role than yours truly?

With the help of this recent historical scholarship we can "put it all together " and bid Bon Voyage to these great surveyors 

Come celebrate what these men did and learn something more about its scientific importance and historical implications.  The parallels to our current time are inescapable.

The first course of the menu will be served at 7 pm, August 12. For this event we are offering wines for purchase by the glass or bottle. We will provide some suggested pairings, but you are free to make your own choices. However, a small glass of Vidal is included with the lemon cake dessert .

Please join us for a relaxing evening with great food, wine and storytelling while overlooking the Brandywine
