Jeff Marshall at our Next Skippack Historical Society Meeting

Do woods, fields, and historic structures add character to our neighborhoods? Find out how we can conserve and protect them at our next gathering on August 13, 2009.

The Heritage Conservancy of Doylestown, PA. is highly regarded in southeastern, Pa. for its work in retaining these resources that so greatly enhance the quality of life in our communities. Their programs and partnerships with owners have helped to conserve farmhouses, barns, a covered bridge, a lake in nearby Marlborough Township, and more throughout Bucks and Montgomery Counties. The Conservancy also headed the Rte 113 Heritage Corridor Survey, which took them on an investigative tour all around Skippack Township.

Jeff Marshall, the Vice President of the Conservancy, has agreed to come to Skippack to meet with us to answer questions and explain the conservation and preservation techniques and programs of the Heritage Conservancy. He will also briefly describe the Rte 113 survey and why Skippack Township is included. One technique to be covered is Fa├žade Easements, which is a service offered to property owners. Mr. Marshall has authored the book, "The Barns of Bucks County," and has a new publication on farmhouses which will be available soon.

Gather your questions and come join us for a most interesting evening at WELLSPRING CHURCH at Cressman Road between Skippack Pike and Rte 113 in Creamery on Thursday, August 13th at 7:30 P.M.
