Bricks, Benches & Blacktop

Buy a Brick or Buy a Mile!

In 2014 Fruitlands would like to improve physical accessibility on site by focusing on the "3 Bs" - Bricks, Benches, and Blacktop. Our goal is to make it easier for all of our guests to navigate and enjoy the campus.

This initiative will allow us to:

•  Reinstall the brick walkway that leads into the Museum Store and Café.  Your $50 donation allows us to install a single brick in the path. Simply change the quantity field after clicking the Buy Now button below to install more than one brick!

•  Offer more places to rest on campus by purchasing new benches. Your $400 contribution will add a bench to the campus and, for an extra $100, you will have the opportunity to personalize your bench with a custom plaque to honor a special person or family in your life. If you choose to support the Museum through a memorial bench, a museum staff member will contact you regarding the personalization of your plaque.

•  Repave the blacktop from the entryway down to the Farmhouse. Your donation will enable Fruitlands to pave a 50 square foot section of our driveway.

Yes, these are big projects - which is why we are asking for your help today!

The "3 Bs" are part of a larger facilities improvement plan that we hope to have complete by the end of 2015.

The first project we're going to tackle is the brick walkway. We are halfway to our fundraising goal of $10,000 and hope to complete this challenge by the end of October.
