New Freedom Heritage

New Freedom Heritage is a 503c not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving the rich history and culture of New Freedom, Pennsylvania. It was founded on June 15, 2004 by several members of the New Freedom Community Gardeners whose hope was to promote a better future for the community. That is still an important part of the mission today.

Since it’s inception, New Freedom Heritage has had a significant impact on the community. Activities and projects have included:

– Annual New Freedom Fest More
– Creation of the Freedom Green Community Park More
– Creation of the Heritage Museum of New Freedom and an interactive kiosk
– Summertime free outdoor movie nights
– Town murals
– Recording local history
– Monthly speaker series
– Stream rehabilitation
– Members picnic on the Green

We are cleaning out our duplicates at the museum so now is a great time to get a piece of New Freedom history. The glass pieces are all $1.00 each and the coin sets are $5.00 each. You can stop in on February 5th between 1-4 when the museum is open or message us to set up a time to meet at the museum. ... See MoreSee Less

It is time once again to ask for membership dues for New Freedom Heritage. Annual membership is a tax deductible $25.00 per year mailed to PO Box 366, New Freedom, PA 17349 or paid by PayPal at www.newfreedomheritage.org/?page_id=35.

Some of the things that happened in 2022:
• The new mural on the side of Marlin’s Auto at the New Freedom Green
• Lots of updates and changes to the museum – power washing and painting the exterior of the museum, new displays and lots of new donations from generous people in our area (open the first Sunday of each month from 1-4)
• Two movie nights (we are looking for someone to help with this next year)
• A float in the Christmas parade
• A new museum sign (thanks to the Borough for providing the pole and installing it)
• Sanded and painted the picnic tables at the Green
• Brick drainage from off of the rail trail (thanks to an Eagle Scout project)
• Several very interesting guest speakers talking about the history of the area
• Holiday decoration of the gazebo
• And, of course, the New Freedom Fest!
We are always looking for volunteers so if there is anything listed that looks interesting, just let us know.
