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.
