Donate to the Van Horn Mansion. Help us Win $35k!

We've been honored with a challenge grant: If we can raise $35,000, we will be gifted another $35,000! The funds will refresh the Van Horn Mansion, including rental upgrades, repairs, new appliances, a new wheelchair ramp at the Front Door, an ADA-compliant bathroom, and refreshing our displays.

Please donate today! Learn more about the project here:

The Van Horn Mansion is a living history museum and event center, built as a home by the Van Horn Family in 1823. We hope to honor the estate’s 200th birthday by raising funds for our Revitalization Project to keep it a mainstay attraction of the Newfane community. It’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places, run by the Newfane Historical Society, and is a cultural and historical centerpiece for Newfane, NY.

** The additional $1k (beyond $35k) is to ensure we have enough funding due to rising prices and unforeseen expenses. Thanks for understanding!
