With your help, we can preserve the William Tennent House for our local community and beyond!
By clicking the Donate button, you will be taken to a Paypal page where you can make a donation to help preserve the William Tennent House. Your generous contributions will go towards the following two projects:
Dendrochronology will be performed by Transom Historic Preservation Consulting to analyze wood samples from the timber frame structural components of the house. This analysis is part of an overall investigation to date the uniquely constructed historic core of the Tennent House. For more information about Transom Historic Preservation Consulting and the process of Dendrochronology, please go to: https://www.transomhpc.com/dendrochronology/
The submission and consultation phase of the Historic Resource Survey Form to the PA State Historic Preservation Office. This process will lead to a determination of eligibility of the William Tennent House for the National Register of Historic Places. Once eligible, we can apply for grant funding opportunities which in turn will help us to continue structural and archaeological studies and reach our goal of restoration.
We are also offering an incentive to anyone who donates $150 or more. At this level, you will receive:
A 1-Year Membership to the William Tennent House Association and a personal Tour on the Tennent Trail of History by “Mrs. Catherine Tennent” (portrayed by Wendy Wirsch), which includes the gravesite of William Tennent, Neshaminy-Warwick Church Sanctuary, Log College Monument, and William Tennent House. This tour will be for up to 4 people (you and 3 friends). Since it requires some outside walking, these tours will be conducted at a mutually agreed upon date between March and November.
You may also make a donation via check/money order made payable to “William Tennent House Association” and mail it to: WTHA, P.O. Box 2572, Warminster, PA 18974.
