Presentation: Davis College: Over a Century in Johnson City!

107 Main Street, Johnson City. Presentation begins at 1:00 p.m.

Over a century ago a young evangelist built an institution in Lestershire, NY with a gift of one dollar. From its humble beginnings the school would transform the city of Lestershire as it became Johnson City, including the purchase of a bankrupt amusement park. Today, its alumni live and serve throughout the United States and around the world. Presented by Davis College Historian, Corey J. Adams. Free and no registration required.
