Welcome to The Millbrook Society.
The Millbrook Society is a non-profit organization that inspires passion for 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.

Millbrook Highlights...

Millbrook members enjoyed a fun and festive walk down York Road at the 2022 annual Hatboro Holiday Parade!  

 

 

 

Millbrook updated its local history display at Hallowell Elementary School in December.  The display features the life of renowned local historian Charles Harper Smith and his wife, Helen.  They owned the Kenderdine tract in Horsham, which they called "Millbrook."  Millbrook is proud to support the Hallowell school community!
