Some of the programs and activities we initiate:

Historic District - In 2000, the North Wales Historic Preservation District was established by Borough Council and the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission to protect the architecture that is a visual reminder of the borough’s past. It is the first Historic District in the North Penn boroughs.

 

House Histories - helping with research your house history.

 

Education - teaching the community about North Wales history.

 

Historic Preservation - we archive and catalog historic photos and memorabilia. Many of these items come to us through donation.
