The Ellen G. White Estate has voted to make Adventist Heritage Ministry a more integral part of its operations. AHM’s four historic sites had previously been run entirely by volunteers, so the new change will enable it to employ a full-time executive director, who will also serve as an associate director of the White Estate. The four sites under the direction of Adventist Heritage Ministry are William Miller’s farm in Whitehall, New York; Hiram Edson’s farm in Clifton Springs, New York; Joseph Bates’ childhood home in Fairhaven, Massachusetts; and the Historic Adventist Village in Battle Creek, Michigan, which is comprised of the home of James and Ellen White, the Second Meeting House, the Parkville Church, and a 19th century schoolhouse. The Adventist Heritage Ministry will continue to serve its approximately 12,000 annual visitors as both an evangelistic tool and a reminder of Adventism’s roots.
