How Can you Help?

Annual Appeal Campaign

Because of our membership, a very talented Board of Directors, and the generosity of the community, we continue to advance the historic significance of Jacob Ehrenhardt Jr.’s and his family’s homestead. We especially appreciate the response to our annual financial appeal. Because of this generosity, we continue to create programs that enlighten the community about the history of Emmaus. We are making our fifth annual appeal on behalf of the 1803 House programs. We respectfully ask for your special financial support of this historically significant site in our community. Our goals for this year include continued restoration and preservation of the House, more historic educational events, more acquisitions, completion of a site master plan, installation of a colonial fence between the property and the adjacent railroad property, completion of requests for grants, increased membership, and member participation. We are also planning paint restoration projects and further preservation of the kitchen/entry area letter from President; donation form
