Support the Archives Project

Our goal is to preserve and nurture the history and artifacts of Bethany Children’s Home. This year, our focus is on moving the historical files to new cabinetes, digitizing records, and creating a living history through videos of Bethany. Alumni are encouraged to contact the Office of Development at 610-589-6828 to schedule a time for us to record your personal experiences at Bethany.

1940 United States Federal Census1We would like to find and negotiate the return of some of the older materials sold off during the auction of items from the Administration and Santee Buildings and the old schoolhouse.

We are consolidating the oldest records found on campus including financial records since the late 1800’s, the Alumni Records from Frick Cottage; and we are working to create an updated history of Bethany since the Ray Vandevere book.

  1. Any photographs, artifacts, books, and documents related to Bethany
  2. Your written and financial support to Bethany Children’s Home for the                               Archives and the Archives Project.
