Hope Lodge

Public Meeting, Jan. 20, 2010


A public meeting was held to discuss the future of Hope Lodge at the First Presbyterian Church in Flourtown. Hope Lodge was closed temporarily for public visitation last November 20 by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission due to the reduction in funding under the new state budget. The Friends of Hope Lodge plan to reopen the site on some basis in the spring, and also want to establish a sustainable operating plan for the site. We believe the key to the future of Hope Lodge will be making the entire 40-plus acre site a more valuable community resource. The Friends presented some ideas for creating a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) venture, as well as recreational and educational opportunities. There was extensive public comment (see below).
