Join us on the 240th Anniversary of the Bucks County Treasury robbery in Newtown, PA, by the members of the notorious Doan Gang. This behind-the-scenes in-person program at the Mercer Museum showcases prominent artifacts and documents pertaining to the Doan Gang and the robbery.

This presentation begins with a 15-minute overview of the robbery and gang members, followed by an interactive Q&A with Bucks County Historical Society library and curatorial staff. After the program, guests will have plenty of time to browse through never-before-seen collections items from the vaults of the Bucks County Historical Society, some of which were owned by the gang members.

Advance registration is required for all.
