About this project

Please watch this short video for a tour of Old Caln and a description of restoration projects, then return to this Kickstarter project page:

In our efforts to preserve Old Caln Meetinghouse, we have been fortunate to have received funds from the Meeting House Trust of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, Religious Society of Friends; National Trust for Historic Preservation; and a Keystone Grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission; as well as from private donors. All granted funds require 50% matching funds from us.

         We have completed projects such as replacing most of the interior flooring in an historically appropriate manner, redoing the South roof in 2007 and the North roof in 2014, and restoring approximately half of our windows.   Currently, we have received a Keystone Grant to restore the remaining windows, as well as to accomplish some other restoration projects such as repairs and painting of the fascia boards around the building.

        We need your help to raise the required matching funds, otherwise, we will not be able to benefit from the Keystone Grant.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest risk is not raising enough matching funds to access granted funds that we have been so fortunate to receive. We have an excellent team of contractors who can complete the needed restoration projects in an historically correct fashion, thereby helping us to preserve Old Caln for future generations.
