Ned Harrington Scholarships

Ned Harrington, who passed away in 2009 at age 89, was a long time Carversville resident. After moving to Solebury Township in 1948, Ned was a congenial and productive member of the Carversville Christian Church, the Paunacussing Watershed Association and the Solebury Township Historical Society. As the Society’s resident historian, he played a strong role in qualifying Carversville for historic designation by the commonwealth. Ned not only researched more than 400 old Solebury houses and their histories, but he also left behind a wealth of historical writings on many topics in the township. Pamphlets he authored and his oral history of Carversville may be read and listened to at the Society’s center, the Solebury one-room schoolhouse. His passion for our local history is honored by these scholarships.
