• the Society headquarters at 659 Smithbridge Road, which is the early home to two prominent township families and houses the Society’s museum, which is under renovation for a spring 2014 opening. 

• The founding symbol of the Society is also open, home to two families who worked at one of the early mills in the township

• The Newlin Mill is opening their Miller’s House for us, which was built in 1739 in order to attract a miller for this early mill.

• We are thrilled to have a National Register home on our tour this year.  It is significant not only for its architecture but its early families who forged our township history.
• Not the least is a home in the Underground Railway, which touts interesting architecture during its almost two centuries of evolution.

• A first for us is a 1940’s cottage, built for the farmer’s son as part of the farming operation.

• This year’s ‘twist’ is a newly built barn for 10 horses, built by the Amish in 2009, and exemplifies old construction techniques.
•The tour finishes at a winery where a complimentary glass of mulled wine tops off the tour!

Tickets may be purchased the day of the tour at the Pierce-Willits House located at 659 Smithbridge Rd., near the Rachel Kohl Library and the American Hero Memorial, where you will pick up your tour map and wrist-band.   Members who want to pay their dues for 2013, or new members who want to join, can do so here Become a Member  Questions may be sent to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
