The Board

The Historic St. Luke’s Restoration Board brings together hundreds of years worth of leadership, non-profit, corporate, and community service experience. This Board is passionate about educating about and preserving the history of this national historic landmark, national patriotic shrine, and national historic district. It takes a lot of work to administer the 43-acre campus incorporating three cemeteries, a columbarium, an 1-acre historic easement including the historic church building, Welcome Center/Gift Shop/Administrative Building, Maintenance Shed, Ponds, and grounds and ensuring that this American treasure remains a vital symbol of American Religious Freedom for generations to come.
