HARRISBURG – The Hummelstown Area Historical Society has been awarded a $21,000 grant to restore and seal the exterior limestone walls of the 1815 Parish House, according to Rep. Tom Mehaffie (R-Dauphin).

The 1815 Parish House is the oldest building in Hummelstown and is located at the intersection of Rosanna Street and North Alley.

The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission this week approved the funding from the Keystone Historic Preservation Grant Program.

“The historical society has done great things with the 1815 Parish House, including curating a collection of more than 14,000 artifacts inside. The building houses an impressive collection of Native American pieces,” Mehaffie said. “I congratulate the historical society on this grant to preserve the building for future generations.”
