The Horsham Preservation & Historical Association (HPHA) 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 c1722 Sir William Keith House/Graeme Park, the c1801 Horsham Friends Meeting House, the Kenderdine Mill, and, the c1721 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!
HPHA works with both the Montgomery County AARD Program and Youth Aid Panel, and participants in these programs may complete their community service obligations with HPHA. This should be arranged through the District Attorney's Office or Youth Aid Panel. If you have any questions please contact Pete Choate at 215-343-0659.
HPHA can also help with other community service requirements for scouting, school, etc. Participants can help around the farm, work on one of our projects, or suggest a project that you would like to do. We have had student and scout volunteers build fences, transcribe historic documents, work with our librarian, and do historical research.
We always have plenty of things we can use some help with so if you have an interest in local history and would like to help us preserve it - Please contact us!
