On August 20th, Val Liggett, along with Kerri Maxfield of Lower Saucon Township and Terry Boos of Hellertown, led a group of Penn State students from the Lehigh Valley campus in a volunteer work day at the Heller Homestead.  The homestead has four historic buildings including the Michael Heller House (c. 1751), the Widow’s House (1850), an original root cellar, and the remains of a 2.5 story stone barn (c. 1751.)  The homestead is the home of the Saucon Valley Conservancy, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and the property is a public park within Lower Saucon Township.

Work completed included the installation of several flower beds, weeding and mulching around the Michael Heller House and the Widow’s House, and eradication of Japanese Stiltgrass using the ‘smothering’ method.  An additional work day is planned with members of the Saucon Creek Watershed Association to plant perennials at the site.
