And Other Good Stuff!

It's time to give thanks for the history we hold dear.  We are grateful the lessons learned, the lives to celebrate, and the stories that need to be told. We thank each of you, who have helped Historic Richmond Town preserve American history throughout the decades.  This season we reach out to you once more for another helping of your generosity.

Richmond Town cares for almost forty historic buildings that date as far back as 1661.  It is one of the largest collection of landmarked homes in the United States.  Over time they age and need more maintenance and care.  We repair and restore on a regular basis but, just like with your own home, the work never stops.  A short time after one project ends another pops up.  Imagine that workload multiplied forty times!

Right now we have some roofs that need some extra attention and care.  We also have other important repairs that need to be done. This work will help us preserve American history and make it safe for the tens of thousands of schoolchildren who visit each year.

In the past few years we have completely restored and replaced the roofs of three buildings: the Perine House, the Print Shop, and the Kruser-Finley House. We have repaired and made watertight several more.  But the Third County Courthouse and the Schwiebert House are still in need of work.

Can you help us with a gift this holiday season? Please send us a little good cheer. It will go a long way.

Thank you for being a friend to Historic Richmond Town and to American history.  Your gift will carry forward to future generations.
