This year’s annual meeting and tour will be in Lancaster June 12 and 13. On the Friday, we will have afternoon paper sessions at the Landis Valley Farm Museum, followed by a barn tour and our banquet. Greg Huber has lined up some impressive barns for the Saturday bus tour, which will depart from Landis where there is ample parking. More details will be available in the Spring 2015 issue of the Forebay Post or click below for the flyer.

Since June in Lancaster is tourist season, no hotels were willing to reserve a large block of rooms for us at a good discount. There are many, many choices nearby, however, and early booking is recommended. For those of you without internet access to search for hotels, and possible online discounts, here are some suggestions. Closest and nicest is Best Western Eden Premier, 222 Eden Road, tel. 717-569-6444. The Days Inn on Lititz Pike is next closest and more modest in price and includes a breakfast buffet, tel. 866-460-7456. For the budget-minded, the Rodeway about 5 miles north on Rt 272 in Akron is no frills, no traffic, no breakfast, tel 717-859-1654. Most hotels in the area have AAA or AARP or other possible discounts if you ask. You can also contact the Pennsylvania Dutch Convention and Visitors Bureau for information by calling 1-800-PA DUTCH.

    Hello, I live in Beaver County Pa with my husband. We are looking for someone to help restore a 1877 Barn that had been in his family for generations. We recently were given ownership. The group that built it was part of the Harmonite Society and I think it’s a German style. Any suggestions?
    Thanks
