Lansdale Historical Society



   The Interior Renovation Committee is seeking donations of Colonial or early 1800s items to refurnish portions of the Jenkins Homestead in time for the annual Holiday History Tour December 1.

   The committee, chaired by Anne Scheuring and Jane Walton, is searching for the following furnishings:


Donated items need not be originals but they should be faithful reproductions of 1770-1830-era furnishings. The committee has changed its goal for this year’s project. Original plans called for refurnishing the second floor front room as a third adult bedroom. Instead, the second floor back bedroom will be redone as a children’s bedroom in time for the holiday tour. The furnishings now in the back bedroom will be relocated to the front bedroom next spring. Both rooms will be repainted and receive new lighting treatments.

    Members and friends of the society with items to donate are asking to contact
Anne Scheuring , (215) 855-1743, by November 1.
