Showing its support for a milestone celebration, the Greater Brownsville Area Chamber of Commerce is honoring the golden anniversary of Nemacolin Castle's house and museum on its 2012 limited edition collectible.

The new issue, now available, marks the third time in the fundraiser's history that the National Trust landmark has been selected as the featured property. It also reflects the dedication of the Brownsville Historical Society's role as the caretaker of the 22-room mansion at 136 Front St.

“For decades, the Brownsville Historical Society has started its Christmas candlelight tours on the chamber's Light-Up Night. It's a cherished tradition,” said Scott Bowman, the chamber's executive director and owner of Bowman Insurance & Real Estate Agency. “Because it's the 50th year of public tours, the chamber felt that the castle should be honored again.”

Bowman and Ray Koffler, founder of Tru-Copy Printing Services in Brownsville, co-chair the annual fundraiser, which is in its 30th year.

Nemacolin Castle was depicted on the chamber's first collectible in 1983 and again in 1989. This year's ornament is a deep wine color with gold lettering in keeping with the golden anniversary.

The 2012 limited edition collectible of Nemacolin Castle will be on sale in its gift shop. They also are available at the chamber office, 325 Market St., and Brownsville Bus Lines Co., 525 National Pike E.
