Welcome to The Millbrook Society.
The Millbrook Society is a non-profit organization that inspires passion about preserving and protecting the rich history of Hatboro and local communities.
We achieve our mission through three interrelated activities:
PRESERVATION…by collecting and maintaining artifacts, documents, manuscripts, maps.
PROTECTION…by archaeology, and recording and researching historical data on buildings and other assets.
EDUCATION…by presentations, programs, publications, reenactments and related activities.
AUGUST 17th, 10 am-4pm: Annual Revolutionary War Encampment/Reenactment at the historic Moland House/Washington's Headquarters House (York Road in Warwick Township). The Millbrook Society staff will be conducting an archaeological program...artifact screening and display of historic artifacts found on the property, some dating to pre-colonial days! Visit Moland House website for more information about the house and the program. There is no rain date.
SEPTEMBER (date, location TBD): "The History of Hatboro: second hundred years." In this sequel to his informative and engaging program on Hatboro's first hundred-year history, David Shannon, Millbrook's historian and former Borough Historian, will highlight Hatboro's history from after the Battle of Crooked Billet up to the end of the 19th century...a history that includes two of Hatboro's most distinguished citizens, Nathaniel Boileau and Robert Loller. We will confirm the date and location shortly....stay tuned!
