2013 Annual Appeal

2013 was a good year for HPHA! We received generous donations from our members and supporters, and several large grants and donations from other parties that will help us continue our community benefit work. We took the first babysteps in our Collections Management project to catalog and make available our large collection of historical documents, items, maps, photos etc... so your continued support is needed! ...(more...)

HPHA has good news for 2013! We received a number of generous donations as a result of our 2012 annual appeal. Our donations exceeded $6470 from our members and supporters. Additionally, this year the Horsham Industrial and Commercial Development Authority donated $5000 for the restoration project and a member of the Strawbridge family donated $10,000 to start our Collections Management project.

Our fund raising events raised about $8700. These monies came chiefly from our World War III re-enactment event, fees for filming the movie Remorse on our property and other smaller events.

The HPHA Board desires to work on the following major projects in 2014;

Finish the ceiling repairs in the Strawbridge room. Steel support beams must be inserted in the ceiling. A new plaster ceiling must then be installed. Estimated cost of $10,000.

  • Start our Collections Management project. HPHA has a significant collection of original area maps, Strawbridge manuscripts from 1683 and local historical documents from the 1700’s. We are applying for foundation grants to allow us to protect HPHA’s collection and make our library accessible to the public. We hope to raise $25,000 from our appeal. Estimated total cost of $50,000.
  • Continue to maintain and restore the buildings on the Penrose-Strawbridge property

  • We hope that you and our other friends will be generous this year. Please help us by attaching a check made out to HPHA and mailing it to us.Please help us continue our community benefit work!
