Gerald Kershner was a graduate of Berwick High School and had a great love for history. He particularly loved the Jackson Mansion as he was the great grandson of Colonel Jackson's coachman Jacob Knecht. His dream was to see the Jackson Mansion restored back to its glory days. Once The Berwick Historical Society got the chance to restore the Mansion, Jerry jumped in with both feet. Jerry made many financial donations and helped oversee much of the restoration using his vast knowledge of the Jackson family. We always enjoyed listening to Jerry tell stories about the Jacksons. He was loved by many and will be missed by all of us.
The Berwick Historical Society wants to continue Jerry's legacy at the Jackson Mansion and therefore has started the Gerald Kershner Memorial Fund. This fund will be used to continue the restoration that Jerry helped start.
