Welcome to the home of Churchill Strategies, located on historic Governor’s Row in downtown Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
We’re grateful to The Pennsylvania Family Institute for letting us share in the stewardship of Shunk Mansion – the historic home of Pennsylvania’s former chief executive, Governor Francis R. Shunk. The governor resigned from office on July 8, 1848 and died just 26 days later. A model of humility in public service, he resigned when physical limitations prevented him from the “discharge of the duties” of public office.
His message to Pennsylvanians concludes with the following paragraph – a parting prayer for the people he faithfully served:
“In taking leave of you, under circumstances so solemn, accept my gratitude for the confidence you have reposed in me. My prayer is that peace, virtue, intelligence, and religion may pervade all your borders; that the free institutions you have inherited from your ancestors may remain unimpaired till the latest posterity; that the same kind Providence which has already so signally blessed you may conduct you to a still higher state of individual and social happiness, and when the world shall close upon you, as I feel it is soon about to close upon me, that you may enjoy the consolations of the Christian’s faith, and be gathered, without a wanderer lost, into the fold of the Great Shepherd above.”
Our office is within reach of great hotels, restaurants, and celebrated palace of art – The Pennsylvania State Capitol. Stop by for a visit. We’d love to see you.
