Hallowell Elementary Historical Exhibit

Hallowell Elementary Historical Exhibit

The new Hallowell Elementary School opened on August 15, 2017. The school includes 2 historical references to connect the 21st century with Horsham's past.

Three local historical societies: Horsham Preservation and Historical Association (HPHA), the Delaware Valley Historic Aircraft Association (DVHAA) and The Millbrooke Society; have teamed to create an historical exhibit in the hallway of the new building. The exhibit contains historic artifacts and documents from the Horsham area and complements the timeline mural which was commissioned by HPHA's Peter Choate. The exhibit was dedicated October 28, 2017

Hallowell Elementary School

Hatboro-Horsham School District's new, $31 million Hallowell Elementary School officially opened Tuesday (April 18,2017). The school was open for limited use in the spring of 2017 and opened full time to students for the Fall term. Its official grand opening will be October28, 2017. Please check the Hatboro-Horsham School District web site for details. HPHA will be there to dedicate our timeline mural.

The school, a two-level, 88,000-square-foot building, was built on 6.8 acres at state Route 611 near Moreland Avenue on property that once housed the former Army Reserve Center. The land, adjacent to the "old" Hallowell, was deeded to Hatboro-Horsham for $1 by the federal government. The former school will be torn down to make way for fields and a playground.
