Pa. Awards Historic Planning Grant To Freight House Project
We at Discover Lansdale are proud to announce that our civic nonprofit has been awarded a 2021 Keystone Preservation Planning Grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.
The $14,310 grant is designated for the planning, promotion, and development of historic resources. Discover Lansdale applied for the grant to help fund construction plans and design documents to prepare for the historic rehabilitation project at the stately stone Freight House on South Broad Street.
The grant is a 50% match; Discover Lansdale is required to fund the remaining half by donations, sponsorships or other means.
"This is pretty exciting for us,” said Bill Henning, who chairs Discover Lansdale’s Freight House Committee. “This project, near and dear to our hearts, has been slow going, but this Keystone grant is a much-needed step toward our goal of preserving and repurposing this historic building for use by the entire Lansdale community."

Work Continues On Lansdale's Historic Freight House Project
Watch for new volunteer opportunities as work continues at Lansdale's historic Reading Freight House.
Discover Lansdale just finished rehabilitating the stone work and door sills along the new Liberty Bell Trail, with exceptional work done by our friends at John Kleckner Concrete and Masonry.
The exterior deck and old crane hoist are gone, and the deck's stone piers, made of the same stone as the building, were saved to be reclaimed.
The old wood flooring is still available for sale, in varying lengths at $6 per foot. And we will be selling souvenir benches made from that wood in the near future. All income goes right to the restoration fund.
Also, please consider donating to the effort. Our goal is to restore this glorious structure to the community, and make it a central venue and borough resource for the entire area. Whether you can donate or volunteer, all help and support is gratefully appreciated.
