Local artist and longtime HPHA member Leon Clemmer painted a number of original watercolors featuring historic sites in the Horsham area. These had been available for sale through HPHA.
We are sad to report that both Leon Clemmer and his wife, Mary Jane (who had been treasurer of HPHA) recently passed away. The watercolors we had previously offered below are no longer available.
Leon Clemmer was the author of numerous articles for the York Road Historical Society, One God 16 Homes (with Rabbi Simeon Masin),The Steele Idea, plus History of Horsham Township - Images of America .
Leon had also been President of the Huntingdon Valley Kennel Club, the York Road Historical Society, and the Carpenters Company of the City and County of Philadelphia, the Young Engineers at the former Engineers Club of Philadelphia, served on the Board of Directors of the Union League of Philadelphia, the AIA of Philadelphia, and PSA of Pennsylvania. He was the Vice Chairman of the Abington Township Planning Commission, Secretary of the AIA of Philadelphia, and of his Class of 1951 from the University of Pennsylvania.

Leon has studied watercolors under Howard Watson and many other artists.
