Athol Manor

The Community Foundation’s next chapter will begin at Athol Manor.

We have officially moved into The Apple Ford Center at Athol Manor! Our new home at historic Athol Manor is located at 6680 Martin Road in the village of Hickory Ridge – next to the new Brightview senior living community. Our exciting new space dates back to 1732 and is listed as a Maryland Historical Trust property. The home is rich with history as the original local residence of Rev. James MacGill.

In addition to the beautiful office space and grounds, Athol Manor will make the community foundation much more accessible to the public for programming, meetings and events.

Harkins Builders has done an amazing job in the restoration process, salvaging as much of the unique and antique elements of the original house while completely modernizing the essential infrastructure and bringing it up to code.

The renovation and restoration of our new home at Athol Manor presents some exciting opportunities for donor recognition to our Next 50 Campaign endowment fund. Naming opportunities exist both inside Athol Manor and around the grounds.
