Preserving Longswamp Area History Since 2011

Longswamp Township is blessed with a multitude of surviving historic structures, from barns and stagecoach stops to the Victorian era and pre-Victorian era homes, plus three sites listed on the National Register of Historical Places: The Mary Ann Historic District (Trexler's Furnace), the Long/Hawerter Grist Mill, and the former Lutheran Orphan's Home.

Who We Are

The Longswamp Township Historical Society (LTHS), a 501(c)3, 509(a)(2) non-profit, all-volunteer charitable organization, has been discovering, preserving, sharing the past and historic culture of Longswamp Township area since being incorporated in 2010. The organization was first authorized by the Longswamp Township Board of Supervisors pursuant to Resolution No. 2009-22, which was adopted October 27, 2009. 

Our museum and library collections include artifacts, documents, manuscripts, and photographs that have been donated or acquired. Our collections, now more than 2,000 items strong, will serve as a repository for community members as well as historians, history buffs, genealogists and anyone who wishes to learn more about the township's past:  people, places and things.
