This founding group formally established our organization the following year, 1977, soon after chartering it as the United German-American Committee of the USA, Inc. – and now also known as the German-American Heritage Foundation of the USA® (GAHF).
It was with considerable patience and foresight, persistent effort, and prudent stewardship that our organization, thirty years later, under the outstanding decade-long leadership of President-Emeritus Bern E. Deichmann, acquired Hockemeyer Hall, a townhouse built in 1888 in the old Penn District of Washington, DC. The 120-year old structure was converted into a handsome foundation headquarters and museum that formally opened its doors on March 20, 2010, thus fulfilling the long-cherished dream of the founding members of establishing the Foundation Headquarters and the first national German-American Heritage Museum of the USA™ in our nation’s capital.” Dr. John M. Manoyan, President Emeritus
