Certificate of Insurance (Required!)

All facility rentals require a Certificate of Insurance be sent to Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum to cover your event for that day.  The Certificate of Insurance must be in the amount of $1,000,000 and list certificate holders as such:  First insured:  Landis Valley Associates; Second insured:   the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC).  You may obtain this from your homeowners insurance as a rider.  Additional Host or Spirited Liquor Coverage is also needed when spirituous ("hard") liquors are to be served.  Landis Valley Associates reserves the right to refuse the serving of hard liquor if Host or Spirited liquor coverage is not obtained.  Any caterers used must provide Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum with a copy of their Certificate of Insurance for the same amount of coverage.  Certificates of Insurance must be received at least 45 days in advance from both parties.

You may acquire this insurance coverage through your, or your parents', homeowner's insurance.  If you do not have homeowner's insurance or your company does not provide special event/wedding insurance, you can contact one of the companies listed below:
