The Whitemarsh community today celebrated the preservation of Abolition Hall and thanked The Karabots Foundation for the incredible generosity that made it possible.
Whitemarsh Supervisor Chair Laura Boyle-Nester and Whitemarsh Art Center President Dan Zuena were joined by a representative from Congresswoman Madeleine Dean’s office, State Senator Vincent J. Hughes, State Representative Mary Jo Daley and Montgomery County Commissioners Chair Valerie A. Arkoosh in thanking Nicholas and Athena Karabots.
“Today to the history of this place, we add the legacy of Nicholas and Athena Karabots,” said Supervisor Chair Boyle-Nester. “Thanks to their tremendous generosity, the preservation of this unique property and the memories of the women, men and families who sought freedom and those who fought to provide it will continue to be shared.”
As a gesture of gratitude, the Township presented Mrs. Karabots with a key to Whitemarsh.
