...the Future of Horsham's Past

Welcome to the Horsham Preservation and Historical Association

Logo for Horsham Preservaton and Historical Association

The Horsham Preservation & Historical Association (HPHA) is is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation based in Horsham Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, USA dedicated to identifying, studying, preserving and protecting the historical heritage, buildings and artifacts of our area.

We are a community benefit organization!

Located in southeastern PA, just north of Philadelphia, Horsham is in an area rich in history going back to our colonial period. The Sir William Keith House/Graeme Park, the Horsham Friends Meeting House, the Kenderdine Mill, and, the Penrose-Strawbridge House (currently under restoration by HPHA) are only some of our many historical treasures.

Horsham today is a thriving suburban community and was recently named one of the best places to live in the US based in part on our rich legacy. We'll be updating this site frequently as we continue to document this history and update progress on our restoration projects. If you have something to add to our record or are interested in the history of the area, please contact us and/or become a member!
