The Lansdale Historical Society was founded in 1971 and is located in Montgomery County, Lansdale, PA. We are on Jenkins Avenue in a two-building complex. Our purpose is to preserve the history of the Borough of Lansdale and the greater North Penn area. We also share its collection of material and resources with the greater community, particularly the youth. The buildings are owned by the Borough of Lansdale.
The Lansdale Historical Society complex also includes the Jenkins Homestead. The Homestead is a 1770-era Federalist-style farmstead that is the oldest building within the original borders of Lansdale. Portions of the Homestead have been restored and are open for public tours.
