We’ve worked out an agreement with the Historical Society for recognition as a standing committee of the organization. That makes sense, because the Society was originally organized in 1972 expressly to save and restore the Roseberry house. Since the Society is already a 501(c)3 corporation, all contributions are tax deductible.
Attending the meeting were Phillipsburg Area Historical Society President Wayne Sherrer, Vice President Randy Piazza, and Treasurer Carol Stocker, for the Society, Mayor Harry Wyant, Helene Meissner, head of Phillipsburg’s Ole Towne Festival. Roseberry Homestead volunteers Scott Curzi, Ed & Donna-Marie Saultz, Diane Wilson, Brien Lee, and Frank Greenagel; also attending was architect Michael Margulies, AIA, who we expect to work with on the stabilization and restoration process.
We’ll have an announcement about our plans for our participation in the Ole Towne Festival in the next couple of weeks.
