Dear Members, Friends, & Community:
Promont and ALL GMAHS activities are currently closed or cancelled through May 2020 due to the COVID-19 novel coronavirus and mandates from the state of Ohio to assist Public Health and safety.
We are implementing very limited office hours at this time. Please email or call if you need us. You can find email addresses and our phone number at the end of this message.
You are welcome to drive through and grab a book (or leave a book) from our Little Free Library. Our goal is to provide historical fiction and nonfiction books and we appreciate anyone who can share the same with the community.
You are welcome to the grounds of Promont to sit outdoors and have a picnic lunch, read, or take a walk (especially helpful for the kids!). We encourage all to enjoy some fresh air & exercise during this time. We only ask that you stay safe & respectful of the property and each other, limit your group size, and distance yourself from others.
MAKER’S MARKET ON MAIN: Scheduled for May 9th in partnership with the City of Milford is CANCELLED. We plan to be back in May 2021. Refunds are currently being issued.
THE BROWN BAG LUNCH SERIES has been cancelled for the summer 2020 season. We plan to be back in May 2021!

Go Fund Me for Promont
We have discovered some serious water damage at our beloved Promont. The most urgent repairs are needed on the balconettes on the tower, as well as the plaster and moldings of the master bedroom, and the ceiling and walls of a third-floor servant’s quarter. Please consider visiting our Go Fund Me for more details and to assist us with these repairs, which require custom preservation work in some areas.
We have received donations of $5 to $500 and we could not be more grateful for the support our community is offering 154 yr. old Promont! Every dollar counts in this campaign and we appreciate your support! Please click the button below to add your contribution. Thank You!
