Finally: July 27 Barn raising at the
Nicholas Stoltzfus House


Since the ceremonial groundbreaking, May 9, 2008, supporters of the preservation have asked, “when?” It took the zeal of Alberta Stolfus, inviting friends to the Stoltzfus Restaurant in Intercourse on her 90th birthday, to reach the goal David Esh, builder, had set to take the first step.

ground breaking

Actual excavation began on May 10 in time for footers to be laid before the May 14 auction this year. May 30 the Borough of Wyomissing extended approval allowing the barn raising to begin July 27.

Many contributors and volunteer help enable this first step. To complete the barn, including the caretaker apartment and the heritage room, will require more donations of time, materials, and funds. Vivian Beiler, treasurer, can be contacted at 243 W Fulton, New Holland, PA 17557.
