Current Projects

Museum Renovation and Move to Pennypack Community Center: The Millbrook Society is currently in the process of moving the Amy B. Yerkes Museum of Hatboro history into a newer, bigger, and more community-oriented location at the Pennypack Community Center (the former Pennypack Elementary School at 130 Spring Avenue behind Amy's Family Pizzeria), tripling the available space. This long-awaited move will allow the Society to display more artifacts, tell more stories, and accommodate more visitors than ever before, and we cannot wait to show it off to you later this spring. It’s the best way we can imagine to celebrate our 40th anniversary with you. Please note that while the museum is moving to Pennypack, The Millbrook Research & Archives Center (our offices, education, and services) will all still remain based at Hatboro Baptist Church. If you have questions or are interested in volunteering as a docent, please reach out to us on our contact page.

Crooked Billet History Fair 2025: Local history alive under one roof! The Millbrook Society team is already prepping to hold its next annual History Fair promoting our local historical societies, historical organizations, museums, and others again in 2025. The purpose of the event, the 3rd annual, is to help these organizations promote education, preservation, protection, and awareness of local history. Artifacts, historical books, photos, maps, artifacts, and other memorabilia showcasing local history will be on display. For more information, click here. or email us at

Museum/Collection Assets Project: The project involves various components and phases and including reorganizing and documenting assets in storage; updating and labeling current displays; and cataloging and digitizing manuscripts, paper files, maps, photographs, slides, and film. Volunteers are welcome whether or not you have experience with this type of work! Contact us at if you would like to help out.

Real Estate Records Project: Millbrook is the custodian of a number of real estate records formerly with Miller Cornell. Staff members and volunteers are reviewing the deeds, wills, maps, and other documents in the property package, and then entering data from these records for relevant categories such as family names, name changes, property location and acreage, and other interesting information. Millbrook is undertaking this project to make this information more easily accessible for those researching properties or genealogical information. The project team can use volunteers to help with entering data and maintaining these files. Contact us at if you would like to help out.


Past Projects

There are many more projects led by Millbrook since its founding. Projects often are based on the strengths that each of the members can bring to it. Some departments and projects were shelved until someone comes around with the skills to continue them...or to start something new. This is what makes Millbrook so unique! No matter what interests or skills a person has, Millbrook offers something for everyone.
