Historic Shepherdstown And Museum
129 East German Street
Historic Shepherdstown is an active, non-profit, membership organization didicated to preserving Shepherdstown's architectural character, and building public understanding of Shepherdstown's distinctive history.
Incorporated in 1961, Historic Shepherdstown has undertaken many important major projes that benefit our community. The Historic Shepherdstown Museum was founded in 1983, and in 1986 the expansion and updating of the National Register for Historic Places listing for the Shepherdstown Historic District was completed. The largest effort began in 1972 when the historic Entler Hotel was scheduled for demolition. Volunteers worked together to save and restore the building as a center for public activity. After many years of heavy public use, a major 25th anniversary renovation project was undertaken in 1997-98 to further enhance the public rooms. Today the Entler is headquarters for the Historic Shepherdstown Commission.
The Historic Shepherdstown Museum is located in the Entler Hotel, at the corner of Princess and East German Street in Shepherdstown. In 1983 the Historic Shepherdstown Museum was founded to preserve and display artifacts, furniture, and historic documents that might otherwise have been lost.
