The Village, the Gas Pipeline, and the Yard Sale

The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission recently awarded the Village of East Nantmeal and surrounding farms – an area of about 1000 acres – a Determination of Eligibility for listing on the National Historic Register. This means that we are just one step away from almost 10% of our Township being included on the National Historic Register! And this also means that we may have  another good reason to prevent gas pipelines from invading our precious open space and backyards.

The research needed to complete the final application will cost about $7000, money which the East Nantmeal History Society will have to raise. Because Historic Registry status could also help protect our land, the East Nantmeal Land Trust is assisting with fundraising.

Hopefully, everyone who lives here will recognize what this all means to our Township and to themselves, and support it any way they can. Every dollar counts, so every gift, no matter how small will make a difference!
