Preserving Our PAST To enlighten our PRESENT And provide for the FUTURE




Month of February: During the month of February, HLA will honor Black History Month with a display focusing on local residents and history in Langhorne. Although we have limited holdings in this area, we will try to highlight the African-American story in our area from the time of Jeremiah Langhorne to present day. For instance, did you know that when the Langhorne Branch of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Chapter of the Red Cross was organized in 1917, "the Colored women of Langhorne formed their own Auxiliary known as Auxiliary 390." Please stop by during February to see our display.

Monday, March 26th, 2018, 7:30 pm: HLA is pleased to welcome General George Washington, who is portrayed by John Godzieba at the Washington Crossing Historic Park. When not portraying George Washington, he is known as the Chief of Police in Langhorne Borough. Be sure to join us for this event!

Monday, April 23rd, 2018, 7:30 pm: HLA will present a program on Native Plants with Jim Bray, a naturalist at Bowman’s Hill Wildlife Preserve, a Master Gardener and past Chairman of the Lower Makefield Township Environ-mental Council. His Native Plant presentation will feature striking photographs taken by a friend and professional landscape photographer, and he will discuss the historical legacy of these plants and the significant environmental benefits associated with their use. He will also discuss Lower Makefield Township’s innovative Native Plant ordinance.

These meetings are open to the public and will be held at HLA’s headquarters in the Anna Mary Williamson Library, 160 W. Maple Ave., Langhorne. Refreshments will be served and our gift shop will be open. The building is handicapped-accessible at the rear entrance (with parking). PLEASE JOIN US.
