Fort Washington, PA, July 19, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Eastern National, a not-for-profit cooperating association supporting the educational, scientific, historical, and interpretive activities of the National Park Service and other public trust partners, has announced a philanthropic partnership with Women's Rights National Historical Park in support of a new interpretive exhibit about the historic Wesleyan Chapel.
