The Historic Langhorne Association was established in 1965. Its headquarters are in the original Langhorne Library which was constructed in 1888 and later served as a branch of the Bucks County Free Library. The Historic Langhorne Association officially occupied the building by permission of the Bucks County Commissioners in 1977. The building serves many functions: our monthly business and membership meetings; a museum gift shop; a gathering place for other organizations; and several gala events. It is a museum in which the association houses the many artifacts that have been donated to us by local towns-people. The Historic Langhorne Association is busy researching, recording, and preserving Langhorne history. H.L.A. is a non-profit organization that needs support from folks who appreciate history and it's preservation. Join our organization by clicking on the membership link above. Our building is open to the public as a museum and a research library. Our hours are; Wednesdays, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 (noon) and Wednesday evenings 7:00 - 9:00 pm / Saturday hours 10 a.m. to 12 (noon) or by appointment. Please call 215-757-1888 or you may email us.

                       

 


FALL EVENTS:

 

 Walter Bien to speak at September Program meeting

On September 22, 2014 at 7:30 pm, Historic Langhorne will feature Langhorne resident and Drexel University Research Professor Walter F. Bien, PHD who will speak about his work in the New Jersey Pine Barrens.

Dr. Bien is a Research Professor in the Department of Biodiversity, Earth and Environmental Science at Drexel and is Director of the Laboratory of Pinelands Research.

His research focuses on community ecology (New Jersey Pine Barrens), conservation biology, natural resource management, and restoration ecology.

The Laboratory of Pinelands Research (LPLR) was created in March 2002 as a result of a cooperative agreement between the Center for Biodiversity and Conservation at Drexel University and the New Jersey Air National Guard (NJANG). The main purpose of the LPLR is to foster stewardship of the natural resources at the Warren Grove Gunnery Range in support of the NJANG Integrated Natural Resource Management Plan. The LPLR works closely with the NJANG to provide valuable information for managing natural resources that comply with federal and state regulations and to evaluate mission effects on the regional Pine Barrens ecosystem.

It is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served following the program. The building has a lift at the back entrance for anyone needing assistance in entering.
