The Historic Manheim Preservation Foundation (HMPF) is a not-for-profit organization seeking to promote the
preservation of America's heritage and particularly the local heritage of the greater Manheim area.  Located on
the original and unique
Town Square of Manheim, the community of 5,000 people boasts an important role in
the early years of our nation and claims fame as the home and business of Henry William Stiegel, commonly
known as "Baron Stiegel", originator of one of the earliest glass manufacturing operations in 18th century
America.  Manheim, founded in 1762 by Henry William Stiegel, includes a designated historic district in the
center of town and retains many 18th and early 19th century structures.
