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.
