Bradford House Board Members Tripp Kline and Rachel Gladden

The David Bradford House, built in 1788, was home to the Whiskey Rebellion. The BHHA, which is comprised of an all-volunteer board of community leaders, was created to preserve and promote the history and heritage of the David Bradford House and Museum and to educate the public on the role of David Bradford and the Whiskey Rebellion in shaping American history. Additionally, the BHHA hosts the annual Whiskey Rebellion Festival, which has attracted approximately 15,000 attendees.

During his acceptance speech, William (Tripp) Kline, III, BHHA Board Member, stated, "On behalf of the Bradford House Historical Association, I would like to thank the Washington County Community Foundation for this grant. Two of the words in the name of the Washington County Community Foundation are both 'community' and 'foundation.' It is our belief at the Board of the Bradford House, we share a foundation in our community based on our history and what we bring to the community. And we are proud, as a Board, to offer and protect the history of the Whiskey Rebellion and the David Bradford House."
