Friends We Miss
Our group, sadly, has lost a few good friends and supporters over the past several years. We remember them here...
We are extremely saddened to report the passing of the founder and driving force behind HPHA, Margaret Choate. Margaret founded the Horsham Preservation and Historical Association in 1997 and helped form the Horsham Historic Advisory Committee for Horsham Township. She and her husband retired in 2002 to volunteer full time for the historic association. More about Margaret.
