What is the Bernville Cotton Candy House?

No photo description available.

Circa 2019 – House placard added.

The house was built in 1917 and served as the parsonage for St. Thomas UCC Church in Bernville. Throughout its history our home has played a role in the lives of many members of the community, having hosted numerous parties, weddings, and baptisms. It is our hope that our home may play a role in the lives of members of the community once again through events such as our annual Christmas Open House and Trick-or-Treat night.
