Friends of Old Annville (FOOA) Incorporated as a Nonprofit Organization in 1981
OUR MISSION is to promote the preservation and adaptive reuse of historic buildings; to protect the historic streetscape of downtown Annville; to archive documents and images related to Annville history; and to draw community attention to the value of Annville's historic resources.
Below are listed the projects and activities through which Friends of Old Annville works within our community to accomplish our mission.
Our members helped to win recognition of the Annville Historic District by the National Register of Historic Places.
We support maintenance and restoration of historic buildings through our Façade Grant Program and through our Historic Building Awards, given to recognize major renovations of historic buildings in Annville.
Our group restored the Historic Annville Train Station which now serves as headquarters for Friends of Old Annville.
We publish for our membership our Landmark Newsletter six times a year.
We have also helped to publish several books on Annville History which can be viewed on our Books page, as well as numerous booklets and monographs.
We provide on this website monographs, short histories, maps, videos, images, and personal reflections related to Annville History
We maintain an ongoing archival project, the Electronic Archive of Annville History, that contains over 30,000 images, documents, and notes related to Annville history.
For over 30 years, FOOA has sponsored Historic Old Annville Day, a celebration of historic Annville that is held in the town center, usually on the second Saturday in June.
