WHO WE ARE
The Swan Historical Foundation, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and inspiring continuing knowledge and appreciation of the American Revolution for the benefit of present and future generations. The foundation is the founder and developer of the National Museum of the American Revolution.
The foundation is named for an early United States Congressman, Dr. Samuel Swan, of Somerville, N.J., who wrote the bill authorizing a pension for the widows and orphans of the first American soldiers. That legislation eventually led to the creation of the Veterans Administration. His great, great grandson, Mr. H. Kels Swan, established SHF and served as its president.
The Swan Historical Foundation is proud to be a partner and sponsor of America’s 250th Anniversary and is currently in the planning, design, and developmental process of building the National Museum of the American Revolution at Washington Crossing State Park Visitor Center, Titusville, N.J.
