About

History of the Farm, Home, and Youth Foundation of Montgomery County

The former Skippack Elementary School became home to the Penn State Extension office, which includes the Montgomery County 4-H program, in 1984. A non-profit organization was formed under the name Montgomery County Farm, Home and 4-H Foundation and they purchased the empty school building in Creamery from the Perkiomen Valley School District. A board of volunteers was assembled to take on the huge task of raising funds to pay for the expansive renovations the dated building required.

One major goal of the Foundation was to assemble the various agencies in the county that dealt with agriculture, making a one-stop location for the farming community. Two other pressing issues were to relocate the Cooperative Extension offices from their present site in Norristown and to provide meeting space for the numerous 4-H activities and meetings in the county. The vacant school building was the perfect answer.

The generosity of local businesses, individuals and government officials was overwhelming, allowing the office space to be renovated within the first year and the meeting rooms opened the following year. Prior to the Creamery (Skippack Township) location, the 4-H clubs met in an old chicken house in Towamencin Township. This was sold and proceeds were put toward the renovations of the new center.

Additional land was purchased from the State Correctional Institute at Graterford and signed over to the 4-H Foundation in December 1987 by Governor Thornburgh, bringing the property to just in excess of 20 acres.

Several years ago the Montgomery County Farm, Home and 4-H Foundation reorganized as a 501(3)c entity under the name Farm, Home, and Youth Foundation of Montgomery County. The building the Foundation owns is known as the Montgomery County 4-H Center and provides a home for 4-H activities and events. In addition, the 4-H Center also has office space, meeting rooms, and outside facilities available to rent.

At present, a twelve member volunteer board provides leadership for the Montgomery County 4-H Center. Tenants include: Penn State Extension, PA Department of Agriculture Region VII, Tykes and Tots Daycare, Christie Aronow, Clinical Social Worker.
