Summer 2017

 

This summer, a National Park Service team from the Historic Preservation Training Center in Frederick, Maryland will be working on the Zimmermann House. Projects to be completed include handicap parking, ADA ramp and restoration of the steps at the rear entrance, repairing the slate roof and copper flashing, and installation of an integrated drainage system. In order for this work to continue without disruption, it was necessary for Friends to suspend the summer tours. We hope to be able to have house tours available for the 2018 summer season.

 

Sunday Garden Days

 

We meet at 10 am on Sundays to work on the flower garden. Master gardener Carol Padalino has designed the garden to include not only Marie Zimmermann's favorite roses and flowers, but also native deer-resistant plants. If you are interested in joining us, please contact us by email or on our Facebook page.

 

Friends of Marie Zimmermann complete funding of assistantships and scholarships at Peters Valley School of Craft on behalf of the Legacy of the Artist

 

Friends of Marie Zimmermann, a non-profit member organization in Pike County, PA established in 1997 to restore the Marie Zimmermann House has provided funding to Peters Valley School of Craft in Layton, NJ for its 2017 season for Assistantships and Scholarships. The scholarships were further supported through association with Pratt Institute of Brooklyn, NY, where Marie Zimmermann received her first inspiration to become a metalsmith, and which provided two deserving undergraduate recipients with a sizeable contribution from Alumna Anne DeMuth of Dingmans Ferry, PA. The inauguration of this intended annual commitment to Peters Valley by the Zimmermann organization is meant to serve the lasting legacy of the artist for her life-long personal determination and national acclaim for precise elegance in metal crafting. A visit to Peters Valley, one of the top craft schools in the US, is always rewarding with events and exhibitions throughout its working season and a wonderful Retail Gallery open year round.
