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 interacting activities:
- Preservation…by collecting and maintaining artifacts, documents, manuscripts, maps, etc.
- Protection…by archeology, and recording and researching historical data on buildings and other assets.
- Education…by presentations, programs, publications, reenactments and related activities.
