Due to the Coronovirus ( COVID-19 ) the Middleburg/Mason Dixon Historical Society has suspended all meetings through December 31, 2020. A decision will be made at a later date regarding resuming our February 2021 meeting.
Please note: All paid 2020 membership dues will be applied to 2021 membership dues. These are tough but necessary decisions for these trying times. Let's all try to do our part in controlling and doing away with this virus. Be careful and safe.

Rosalie D. Higgins

Born March 20, 1958
Passed October 9, 2020

It is with deepest sympathy that we have to post the passing of one of our Historical Society Community. Rosalie, Darlene Higgins, as most of us knew her, passed October 9, 2020 in Huntingdon, PA. She was born March 20, 1958 in Waynesboro, PA. She was the daughter of Robert and Rosalie ( Leckron ) Hykes. Darlene was a medical secretary. She also served as secretary of the Middleburg/Mason-Dixon Line Historical Society for many years. She was a member of Otterbein United Brethren in Christ Church in Greencastle, PA. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this time.

Hello members and friends of the Middleburg/Mason-Dixon Line Historical Society. Here we are at the beginning of 2021. What a year we have just said adios to. The big event of the year, I would guess, for most people was probably Covid-19 and coping with the virus and trying to stay safe would be at or near the top of things we dealt with in 2020. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those who have suffered loss as a result of the pandemic as well as those who continue to deal with the virus.

Hopefully 2021 will be a better year for all. The promise of an effective vaccine appears to be on the horizon. Perhaps in the not too distant future we will be able to start meeting again for our programs. Thank you to everyone for your understanding and patience as we navigated the pandemic in 2020.

We will keep the website updated as to happenings and decisions in the coming months. We wish each and all a prosperous and happy 2021.
