preservation of America's heritage and particularly the local heritage of the greater Manheim area.  Located on
the original and unique
Town Square of Manheim, (picture circa 1907), the community of 5,000 people boasts
an important role in the early years of our nation and claims fame as the home and business of Henry William
Stiegel, commonly known as "Baron Stiegel", originator of one of the earliest glass manufacturing operations in
18th century America.  Manheim, founded in 1762 by Henry William Stiegel, includes a designated historic
district in the center of town and retains many 18th and early 19th century structures.
