Right here in Kennett Square


Daryl Hall, center, to the left of Daryl is Kurc co-founder Mary Dugan. Further left is Joan Holliday and Mayor Matt Fetick.

In 2010, Darryl Hall, (center) commissioned a mural depicting Harriet Tubman leading freedom seekers. The mural was created by artists Dave Mass and Joey Gothelf. You will want to pay close attention to the scroll at the top left of the mural. It is a list of some of the most widely known local abolitionists. The building itself, on 212 South Willow Street,, was home to the #40 Masonic Lodge in 1888. The Masonic Lodge was created in 1865 by local African Americans.
