Preservation planning efforts are underway with funding provided by Lehigh University and matching grants from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission's Keystone Historic Preservation Planning Grant program and the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Louis J. Appell, Jr., Preservation Fund for Central Pennsylvania. Funding sources are required to realize the planning efforts to stablize, repair and preserve The President Engine House and make the surrounding property accessible to the public.
If you would like to contribute to a fund established by Lehigh University to support their efforts to repair and preserve the ruins of The President Engine House, below is the contact information. The Engine House is in an advanced state of disrepair having been abandoned without further use since 1900. Contributions at any level will be kindly accepted.
