Since 1881, the Historical Society of Montgomery County has preserved and promoted our county’s rich and interesting cultural heritage, from William Penn to Willow Grove Park.  We make available valuable resources on the histories of our townships and the families that have made Montgomery County a great place to live.  Through our exhibits, speakers, and live events we seek to educate and inform about our county’s fascinating past.

Please consider supporting the Historical Society of Montgomery County by becoming a member today.


We love to celebrate the past in a variety of ways throughout the year. Find out what's coming up soon.


Established in 1847, the Society owns and maintains this gorgeous hallowed ground. Find out more about our efforts and events there
