Easement Conference and Members Tour Set for Harmony, PA August 28th

May 13, 2010

Landmarks is inviting historic preservation organizations working within western Pennsylvania to Harmony, PA on Saturday, August 28th at 3:00 p.m. for a program on how Landmarks’ preservation easements program can protect historic and architecturally significant buildings in communities throughout western Pennsylvania.

The one-hour program will take place in Harmony’s Great Hall at the conclusion of a Landmarks-sponsored tour of the historic community. Harmony was the first home of the communal Harmony Society of German Lutheran Separatists, which founded Harmony in 1804 and organized formally as a Christian communal society in early 1805. In 1974, Harmony was designated as western Pennsylvania’s first National Historic Landmark district. Last year, the preservation group, Historic Harmony Inc., donated preservation easements to Landmarks on eight historic properties.

The cost of the tour is $48 for members, $65 for non-members and includes bus transportation to and from Harmony, lunch, tours, and special access opportunities. The bus departs from Station Square at 11 a.m. and returns at 5 p.m. There is no charge to attend the easement program.

More information on the tour and program can be obtained by contacting Jack Miller at or 412-471-5808, ext. 538.
