LAHS History


On February 19th of 2008
the Littlestown Area Historical Society was presented this Littlestown Quilt
that was created to celebrate our countries Bicentennial in 1976

(Ken Thomas- LAHS President receiving quilt from Grant and Agnes Stavely)

This quilt was received by Lil Stavely during our country's bicentennial celebration in 1976 in a raffle used to help offset the cost of the celebration. Lil actually helped sew this quilt as did many others from the Littlestown senior citizens. Later she decided to draw one of her children’s names to see who would receive the quilt after her. Her son, Grant was the one whose name was drawn to receive the quilt. He moved from the area and the quilt went with him. He eventually moved back and wanted to make sure that the quilt was not lost in the years to come. At the February 19th Littlestown Area Historical Society’s history program Grant Stavely presented this quilt to the society for safe keeping and for all to see and remember. The quilt has about 600 signatures around its edge. Only those people who had a Littlestown address were allowed to sign or purchase a chance on the quilt.

We thank the Stavely family and especially Grant and his wife Agnes for making this possible.
