Peter Grim Homestead History

The Society has recently begun restoration of the Peter Grim Homestead, which was the miller's residence built in 1834. In October 1999, this building was also placed on the National Register of Historical Sites. Restoration plans are to reflect a typical 1830s era home. Currently the genealogical library as well as the Society's office headquarters are located in the home.

Restoration will be done with financial assistance and grants from private, local, and state resources along with fundraising events and public contributions.  Through the efforts of Pa. Senator Charles Dent and Pa. State Representative Julie Harhart the Society was awarded a $10,000 DCED grant for the restoration and preservation of the homestead's windows.
