VFPA aims to raise $1 million to rehabilitation the Maurice Stephens House
Founded in 1976, Valley Forge Park Alliance‘s mission is “to inspire appreciation of and support for Valley Forge National Historical Park.” Unlike the majestic park, The Alliance’s current home is a failing structure far from visitor trails and historic sites. Cramped and shabby with precarious stairs, it’s a dreary space that The Alliance has outgrown.
For the first time, the Alliance has an opportunity to create a highly visible community outreach presence within the Park. The Maurice Stephens House (1816) is the first historic property the Park has chosen to rehabilitate with its philanthropic partner, the Alliance.
Through its adaptive reuse program, the Park leases historic structures to generate rental income that it can then use to rehabilitate more structures. Through a rigorous process, the Park has partnered with the Alliance and committed over $1 million to the project if we can raise the remaining nearly $1 million by 2023. The Alliance is honored to partner with the Park on this unique and significant project.
