ADOPT A STONE
Make a lasting impact by adopting a piece of history!
We are proud to share the history of colonial Frederick, specifically the experiences of German settlers during the French and Indian War era, through the interpretation of Schifferstadt Architectural Museum.
It is a museum treasured by generations of Frederick County residents and is the ancestral home in America of scores of Brunner family descendants.
Schifferstadt Architectural Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and receives no financial support from state, county or local governments. We rely on the generosity of donors to preserve this important National Historic Landmark.
The Adopt a Stone program allows donors to choose a stone on the southeast front elevation of Schifferstadt Architectural Museum in exchange for a donation. Donors may ask that their name be acknowledged as being a supporter of the Schifferstadt house museum, and all participants will receive a thank you letter signed by the president of FCLF and a photo showing the location of their adopted stone.
By participating in the Adopt a Stone program, you will help to ensure this historic landmark’s presence for future generations. All donations to the Adopt a Stone program will directly help pay for necessary maintenance and improvements to the Schifferstadt Architectural Museum property.
