Leonard J. Dimmick Fund for Burnside Plantation

The late Leonard J. Dimmick was one of the early supporters of the development of the Burnside Plantation, an 18th century tract of land in Bethlehem, PA, that was a working farm and the home of James Burnside, who was twice a Northampton County representative to the Colonial Pennsylvania legislature.  The Burnside plantation has been restored to its 18th-century look and function, and is used for educational and history-related programs.  By bequest, Mr. Dimmick provided for establishment of this Fund which provides grants for the ongoing programming and facilities of the Burnside Plantation.
