The year 2016 marks the 100th anniversary of the incorporation of Bryn Athyn as a borough in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. A Hill of Unity: The Founding of Bryn Athyn Borough features artifacts, photographs and documents illustrating the early development of this New Church (Swedenborgian) community, leading up to the official incorporation in 1916. Highlights of the exhibition include the actual Welsh-English dictionary used to create the name “Bryn Athyn” in 1899 and the original minutes of the “Village Association” from the 1890s.
