Halls decked? CHECK!

Piano tuned? CHECK!

Kids ready?  DOUBLE CHECK!

Let the sound of children singing melt your heart this Holiday season, with TWO very special shows at Mifflin School

Friday, December 19th.

East Falls Historical Society president Steve Fillmore will be leading historic tours for both shows:  “Compared to much of East Falls, Mifflin’s not all that old — built in the 30’s — but certainly the school is historic to our neighborhood.” 

According to sources at the time, Mifflin School was a federally-funded Public Works project, brought to East Falls by way of well-connected local contractor, John B. Kelly.
