Featured will be a painting done by local artist, John Gamble depicting a photo of Peggy Ann Bradnick. Bradnick was kidnapped near Shade Gap, Pennsylvania, on May 11, 1966. Peggy Ann, who was 17 years old at the time, was kidnapped by William Diller Hollenbaugh and held captive for seven days before she was rescued by Pennsylvania State Police and the FBI at a farm in Burnt Cabins, Pennsylvania. Her ordeal made national headlines, and the search was the largest manhunt in United States history at the time.
