We Welcome Your Involvement

Appleford is managed by a volunteer committee comprised of property neighbors, residents of Lower Merion Township, and other dedicated individuals who are passionate about keeping the house and grounds running and looking beautiful.

Appleford is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and since 1974, The Appleford Committee has raised funds annually, through events and financial contributions, to support the preservation of the historic house and its grounds. The Appleford Committee has sub-committees focusing on the house, grounds, events, membership, tours, and other areas.

The Appleford Committee also hosts a holiday party in early December as a “thank you” for those individuals who have made contributions to Appleford’s annual giving campaign at the Friend level or above ($125+).

Other events that the Committee has hosted on a rotating basis are lectures, neighborhood Open Houses, house and garden tours, and the like. If you would like to get involved with Appleford, please send an email with your name, address, and telephone number to
