Dear Friends,

As you may know, the Sanctuary has been shuttered for public events since March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the building continues to remain closed to the general public, in spring and summer of 2021 we will be undertaking some long delayed interior maintenance projects. Completing these projects will allow us to provide a much-improved visitor experience, host an expanded range of events and programs, and broaden our reach in the community. We will also be updating our marketing materials so that we can build on our strong network of supporters, audiences and users.

We look forward to welcoming you back to our historic space this Fall. Going forward, if you have any questions about what is happening at the 1867 Sanctuary, please contact me at or 609-392-6409.

Thank you,

Emily Manz
