Discovering, recording, preserving and sharing...
The Longswamp Township Historical Society (LTHS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization of interested individuals who are dedicated to discovering, recording, preserving, and sharing the artifacts and cultural history of Longswamp Township. Through the generous donations of numerous individuals, groups, and businesses over the years, we have been able to establish and exhibit some of the artifacts of the township's history within the society's museum. In addition to genealogy research, we also offer educational and entertaining events throughout the year for members and the public alike to learn more about the area and the society. Please explore our page and see the benefits of getting involved with the Longswamp Township Historical Society.
The LTHS was recently awarded a $2,500 grant from the Berks County Community Foundation's Conservation Equity Fund to help support our project, Save Our Station: Mertztown Train Station. Please peruse our website to learn more about us, our programs, our station restoration project, and how you can get involved.
