Historic Valentown is a living history of hometown business and community, a historic site right here in your community.  Valentown Hall is a unique building housing ideas and historic material related to our "Made in America" past.  We represent the people who made our nation strong and independent with their ideas, hands and hard work. Our mission is to bring the site, its buildings, our collection of related artifacts and land to the public as an educational example of the entrepreneurial spirit of America. 

Our greatest responsibility is managing our rural 13 acre site, recruiting volunteers and fulfilling our goal to repair Valentown Hall. As an all volunteer organization our success has come from the generous time of the people who help us stay in the public view while teaching our valuable lessons. 

Support through membership is vital for stability but also acknowledges our volunteer’s efforts and energy.  It lets us keep the lights on, help generate more funds and fulfill our educational goals as a 501(c)3 not-for profit organization in the community.  It is the way for us to move forward into the future.

Our rural landscape reflects the agricultural heritage of the area and the importance of natural landscape practices both past and present.  This not only keeps our site authentic in its proper context but helps support the environment.  Valentown Hall has few historic comparisons.  Each door has a different story behind it, a different lesson.  Telling this story is important but it is also a privilege.  It allows people to understand that from our beginnings are the stories of today.  However without community support and interest we cannot do a good job speaking for those who came before us and contributed to our present day lives.

Your business represents what Historic Valentown is all about.  Please look over our Hometown Business levels of membership.  This membership support was created for businesses who wish to recognize and celebrate the merchants and individuals of the past who created their own working world and are reflected in the Historic Valentown story. Please consider helping the Historic Valentown we are so proud to share with the community.  If you have any questions or would like a private tour, please contact me.

Regards,

Kathryn White, President - On behalf of the Board of Trustees
