Save Egg Hill Church

On a bluff at the edge of Egg Hill stands a beautiful country
church built by members of the Evangelical Association. Built in
1860 to replace an earlier church, it has gracefully stood thru
160 years of stormy winds and rains. Built of pine, the 35 by 42
foot building has floor joists of mortised and tenoned joints and
is held together with wooden pegs over a stone foundation.
At first glance, the church looks as it did for the last 80 years. A
closer look shows the deterioration at the base of the church.
Following an inspection, it was determined that the building is
in good shape. However, the foundation is in very poor
condition and will soon affect the entire building. It is now that
we need to make some repairs to preserve the old church. This
landmark is a very important part of local history. The location
of the church will save it from modern-day construction and
eradication. It is well worth saving for many generations to
come. Your help is needed. We have an estimated amount of
$35,000 to redo the foundation. We are applying for grants and
plan to solicit the area to support this effort to save the church.
Please consider making a donation to this GO FUND ME page. If
you like, you may send your check to Egg Hill Conservancy, 107
Brown Road, Rebersburg PA. 16872. Donation plaques will be
displayed at the church for the following giving levels: $1000
and over – GOLD; $750 to $999 – SILVER; $500 to $749 –
BRONZE; $250 to $499 – COPPER; $25 to $249 – IRON.

 
For many years the Dauberman, Hennig, Dillman and other
families supported the Egg Hill Church until is suspended
regular services in 1927. Today an annual Homecoming Service
is held the last Sunday in September plus weddings and other
special events.

members supporting this fundraiser are: Vonnie Henninger,
President; Ruth Ann Williams, Secretary / Treasurer; LeDon
Young, Jeff Frazier, Mills Wheeland and others.
