Nudy’s Café Supports Living History Center at Duportail
With Special Promotion at All Seven Locations
TREDYFFRIN, PA— From now until mid-June, Nudy’s Cafés across Chester County are generously donating a percentage of the money collected from selected lunch items to support the rebuilding of the Jones Log Barn and creation of the Living History Center at Duportail. Cash collection cans also are located at the register of each restaurant for those interested in making an additional contribution to the Living History Center.
Among the lunch favorites featured are Nudy’s popular Ahi Tuna and Monte Cristo sandwiches, Greek salad and chicken fingers. Nudy’s Cafes are located in Devon, Eagleview, Exton, Frazer, Paoli, Phoenixville, and West Chester.
“We are extremely grateful to Ray Nudy for his generous support and encourage everyone to lend him their support by having lunch at Nudy’s,” comments Pattye Benson, President of the Tredyffrin Historic Preservation Trust.
Ray Nudy is a long-time Trust supporter and co-chair of its capital campaign to preserve the historically significant Jones Log Barn. The barn faced demolition when the Trust arranged to have it carefully disassembled and preserved for eventual rebuilding alongside a 1792 Federal Barn as part of a multi-structure Living Historic Center at DuPortail.
Located outside Valley Forge National Historic Park, the Duportail House served as the quarters for French General Louis Duportail, who became chief engineer to General George Washington and helped to organize what has since become the US Army Corps of Engineers.
