In honor of our 80th Anniversary, we are asking for a special one time pledge, of $80.00. This money will go to helping The Berwick Historical Society to follow our mission to preserve historical buildings and artifacts of Berwick and the surrounding areas. With your $80.00 pledge your name will be on our website, Facebook page, inside the Jackson Mansion, and also up in our new Society Headquarters for this whole special 80th Anniversary Year. With your support, and our volunteers, we will be able to pass on Berwick history for the next 80 years and beyond.
“MAKING BERWICK HISTORY POSSIBLE
|GERALD KERSHNER MEMORIAL FUND|
Gerald Kershner was a graduate of Berwick High School and had a great love for history. He particularly loved the Jackson Mansion as he was the great grandson of Colonel Jackson's coachman Jacob Knecht. His dream was to see the Jackson Mansion restored back to its glory days. Once The Berwick Historical Society got the chance to restore the Mansion, Jerry jumped in with both feet. Jerry made many financial donations and helped oversee much of the restoration using his vast knowledge of the Jackson family. We always enjoyed listening to Jerry tell stories about the Jacksons. He was loved by many and will be missed by all of us.
The Berwick Historical Society wants to continue Jerry's legacy at the Jackson Mansion and therefore has started the Gerald Kershner Memorial Fund. This fund will be used to continue the restoration that Jerry helped start.
Donations can be made using your credit card click here or send a check in memory of Gerald Kershner to: The Berwick Historical Society, P.O. Box 301, Berwick, PA 18603.
