Welcome to the Historic Langhorne Association
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.
