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!
