The Story of the Gobin Guards
To Be Held: Monday, June 26, 2017 at 7pm
Location: Stock Hall, St Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church, 201 W Louther St., Carlisle

join Historic Carlisle for an evening event where we will be commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the United States entering into World War 1.

We will be dedicating a historic marker, and presenting a conversation about the history of Carlisle’s Gobin Guard National Guard Unit, along with a presentation of World War 1 artifacts by the expert historians and interpreters of Time Traveler Trunks More information about the Gobin Guards can be found at Cumberland County Historical Society


During each year, Historic Carlisle arranges events ranging from the installation and dedication of new Historic Markers, through the Annual Tavern Dinner, the Carlisle Summerfair Historic Walking Tours, and major events such as the presentation of "Jefferson and Adams", a performance by the noted Williamsburg troupe which was held in the Carlisle Theatre, and which was provided at no charge to a wildly enthusiastic audience!

In between times, there is of course a plethora of social events for members!
