Historic RittenhouseTown is a proud recipient of a 2016 SOS Grant from Historic Germantown – a collaborative effort between fifteen historic sites in the greater Germantown area! Historic Germantown launched the Sustaining Our Sites (SOS) Fund in 2014 to further the sustainability of all member sites and to draw the consortium sites together in collective development. The fund is a step toward leveraging the power of the collective to develop a pool of money to be used for improvements to historic sites. Historic sites are engaged in community programming and outreach but many sites are headed for serious disrepair and loss of historic fabric as funding for preservation maintenance is scarce. The Sustaining Our Sites Fund seeks to fill that gap. To learn more about the SOS grant, please contact tmayson@freedomsbackyard.com <mailto:tmayson@freedomsbackyard.com> . Historic RittenhouseTown is a charter member of Historic Germantown. Our $6000 grant will be used to install new signage in the village this spring. We want to thank Historic Germantown for this important support.
