2008 Commemorative Tile
The 2008 Commemorative Tile has been produced in limited quantities by Artist & Haycock Historical Society co-founder, Chris Handschin. It is available for purchase, priced at $20.00. The tile measures approximately 5.5 Inches square and depicts Sheard’s/Clymer’s Bridge & Mill as seen from the East Rockhill Township side, facing our Haycock Township.
The topic of covered bridges seemed a perfect fit this year,
with the Perkasie celebration in April, 2008 marking the reopening
of Mood’s Covered Bridge there after vandals destroyed it several
Gerard, “Gerry” as we knew him, often praised our society for
the enthusiasm we shared and wished he could have such support
with his Mill preservation efforts. He realized the gem he had in
Sheard’s Mill and fought long and hard to preserve it. Because of
his efforts, the mill is now on the National Historic Registry.
Sadly, Gerry passed away this year before he got to see his vision
of a fully restored mill, (open to the public for tours), become a
reality. His vision is still a long way off but we hope his family
continues with this torch! We at Haycock Historical Society wish
to honor his life and accomplishments with our 2008 tile.
