The Saucon Valley Conservancy thanks the Moravian College students who showed up for Moravian’s Heritage Day on September 20th and put considerable effort and enthusiasm into sprucing up the Heller Homestead with a fall cleaning! The students made the Homestead shine inside and out.
Thank you Moravian Hounds!
Community volunteers make ALL THE DIFFERENCE in keeping a heritage site like the Heller Homestead preserved and open to the public for educational, community, arts, and environmental events. Please consider joining our volunteers and, most important of all, becoming a contributing member of the Saucon Valley Conservancy.

The 10th Annual Barn Tour, sponsored by Saucon Valley Conservancy, introduced a record number of attendees to eight historic barns or agricultural structures in the region. We exceeded our attendance records by almost 40%! The weather was cool and sunny–it was a perfect day for a drive through the Lower Saucon countryside. Thank you to the folks who purchased those tickets and helped to support preservation of the Heller Barn ruins.
A big thank you also goes out to the three founders of the barn tour, who were recognized formally in a presentation at the Barn Tour Dinner on September 8. SVC’s President, David Hausman, and Lower Saucon Township Manager Leslie Huhn presented acknowledgment awards to Priscilla deLeon, Greg Huber, and Bob “Barn” Ensminger–the people who first made the Barn Tour a reality.
Finally, SVC sends heartfelt thanks to the people “behind the scenes” of the Barn Tour: our members and volunteers who organized, publicized, and acted as docents for this year’s extremely successful event. It could not have happened without you!
