Port Mercer Canal House Fund

Port Mercer Canal House was flooded and badly damaged during Hurricane Irene and Hurricane Lee.  The kitchen floor and part of the walls were removed because of warping and the potential for mold to develop.  The basement, outhouse, and lower exterior walls also suffered damage.  The society would like to repair the damage and repaint the exterior of the house.  If you wish to donate to this fund, please use the donate button at the bottom of this page or send a check to the address at the bottom of the page.
