Total Solar Eclipse Commemorative Journal

The Kimmswick Historical thanks everyone who attended the Historical SEEK (Solar Eclipse Experience Kimmswick) event on August 21, 2017.  We hope you had an opportunity to visit the Apple Butter Pavilion to sign our Commemorative Journal.

In the event you did not have an opportunity to sign the Journal on August 21, you can still record your reactions and thoughts about this awe-inspiring, historical, once-in-a-lifetime event.  We have decided to keep the Journal at the Kimmswick Visitors’ Center (314 Market Street) through Sunday, September 3.  We will then have the Journal on display and available for signing at the Kimmswick Historical Society (6000 Third Avenue).

If you were able to experience the Great American Total Solar Eclipse someplace other than Kimmswick, we are interested in recording your thoughts.  Please email your thoughts, comments, and reactions to We will print your comments and add them to the Journal.

Thank you for helping the Kimmswick Historical Society document this historical event.
