Friday Night at the Museum

Oct 19 2018  Doors open at 5:30 pm. Program begins at 6:00 pm.

Presented by Matthew Carl.

The 1918 flu pandemic was an unusually deadly influenza pandemic that infected 500 million people around the world and resulted in the deaths of 50 to 100 million (three to five percent of the world's population), more than were killed in World War I. The pandemic reached Bradford County and resulted in quarantines, temporary hospitals, and other measures to protect our citizens. Learn about Influenza’s effect on Bradford County and how we recovered from one of the deadliest natural disasters in human history.
