The Historic Property Stewards are a fun group of volunteers with a passion to preserve the historic buildings within the Delaware Water Gap. Each of them adopt a property and maintain the grounds around it expressing the commitment to the preservation of these National Register resources. Occasionally, the members will gather for group projects involving some of the larger and more remote properties and an opportunity to create lasting friendships. In the process of the work, volunteers become familiar with the backgrounds of each property which helps with the understanding of their importance in state and national history. The volunteer efforts of this group are vital in assisting the National Park Service in holding on to these resources and allowing them a chance at survival.
