Welcome to The Millbrook Society's website.
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.
ANNOUNCING NEW, EXPANDED HOURS! Saturdays, 9am-1pm
In order to accomodate our current members and guests (and future members!) who expressed interest in visiting the museum or volunteering, but were not able to come out on Wednesday evenings, Millbrook will now open on the first Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting March 4th! Staff members will be happy to greet you and talk with about Millbrook, our museum, and opportunities to become involved! We look forward to seeing you!
