Historical Commission Updates:
The Caln Township Historical Commission received the 2023 CCHPN Municipality Award for their work toward restoring the Spackman Farm to grandeur and bringing it into the public eye. This committed group of volunteers continues to preserve and promote the many historical gems in Caln Township. They were recently host to one of the coveted CCPC/CCHPN Historic Town Tours and Village Walks at Spackman-Davis Farm, which set a post-Covid county attendance record. With a new Barn roof promising another 100 years, they are now working with the BOC to replace the farmhouse roof. In the meantime, the land continues to be farmed, and all proceeds from the farmer’s rent goes toward farm improvements needed to keep the properties from falling into further disrepair.
