The Mansion in Mertztown, PA is the former location of the Old Topton Lutheran Home orphanage. In its current use as a Patriot House, it provides comfortable housing for 14 to 16 community heroes. A restoration project with an estimated cost of $225,000 is currently underway. We are renovating three bedrooms, upgrading the kitchen and expanding an onsite food pantry. The basement is also being renovated for use as a community meeting center large enough to accommodate 200 people. The building's showpiece feature is a huge stone fireplace built in 1940.
