Look…that is Ebenzer on Bacton Hill Road in Frazer, yesterday.
Now look at this photo from when they were first starting. This photo is Al and Luke the Willistown scout doing his Eagle Scout project when they started this journey (and the way it was when we took the Philadelphia Inquirer out to the site this summer):
And even better is this next photo. It is Al’s son Andrew showing Luke the Eagle Scout project he did at Ebenezer 16 years ago!!! How cool is that?
It got me to thinking. Not only of the generations of the same family interested in preserving Ebenezer for future generations, but how many scouts have actually done service projects here?
It is so obvious the love so many have had for this site. And every day we see more progress. This is what community is about, people. From East Whiteland’s township building to the local Boy Scouts from multiple troops over the years, to all the others interested in Ebenezer in the past and present, this is the good community can do simply because it’s the right thing to do.
Here is hoping the AME Church is watching. And anyone else wondering about trying to save history wherever they live.
This is awesome.
