Friends of Marie Zimmermann is a 501(C)3 Incorporation formed in 1997 in Milford, PA to restore, in partnership with the National Park Service, The Marie Zimmermann House and Farm as a tribute to her artistic legacy, her personal character, and the natural beauty of the site. The location of the farm is in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area near the former village of Dingmans Ferry.
The ultimate goal of the restoration is "Marie Zimmermann Home and Farm" as a public venue with full restoration completed by 2018, and National Historic Landmark Designation by 2020.
"This is ambitious, but doable."
