Barnard Station - Home of Eusebious and Sarah Barnard


We invite you to contribute towards reviving a piece of history in Pocopson Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. Your donation to the Friends of Barnard Station will allow for the restoration of the first floor of the historic Barnard House and creation of the new Barnard Station Heritage Center, highlighting its connection with the abolitionist movement in the 19th century. Your contribution is integral to preserving this site so that the community and future generations can learn about and better understand this part of our history. As Friends of Barnard Station is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, your contributions are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

UPDATE - June 16, 2022

We were recently approved for a matching grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) to complete a Preservation Plan so that we have an accurate foundation to finalize our plans for the restoration of the first floor of the house, where the new Heritage Center will be located. This official report, by a recognized historical preservation architect, will help with future grants that we pursue.

Since this is a matching grant, we need financial help from the community to meet our portion. Each dollar you donate will be matched by PHMC. The Phyllis Recca Foundation has now offered to match all donations made in support of the Barnard Station Heritage Center between June 15, 2022 - September 1, 2022, up to a maximum of $8,000. So, during that time period, every dollar you donate will be matched with two dollars, one from the Phyllis Recca Foundation and one from PHMC. This is a wonderful opportunity for the Heritage Center and our community! Please consider donating now!
