The Annual Fund provides vital operating support to carry out our mission. The Annual Fund is a critical resource that helps us maintain our historic buildings and open them for tours, preserve our collection and make it accessible to in-person and online researchers, and develop new exhibitions and educational programs. Please donate to Historic Trappe’s Annual Fund today. Every donation makes a difference!
