2021 Annual Luncheon


Sadly, last year we were unable to host an in-person Annual Meeting & Luncheon.  Instead, like so many other organizations, we met and concluded our business and held a presentation virtually.  While it was a pleasant compromise and it was good to see many of you on-screen, we are happy to announce that this year are returning with an in-person Annual Meeting & Luncheon.  This year’s event will be hosted at the Joseph Ambler Inn on November 6, 2021.  
While we normally host a featured speaker at this event, this year we have opted to keep our time together a bit shorter.  We’ll still feature the announcement of our Annual Acorn Award, and our Executive Director, Barry Rauhauser, will give a short presentation to update everyone on the challenges of the past year and half.  Seats will be limited, so please RSVP before October 28 by calling us at 610-272-0297.

An Introduction to Researching Your House

Many people entering the doors of our Research Library & Archives are searching for information about their home. When was it built? What did it look like originally? Why does it look the way it does now? What can I do to preserve it? Who built it and who lived in it? This workshop will offer an introduction to some resources and tools that will help anyone discover a little more about their home.

The workshop will take place in Person on December 2, 2021 at 6:00 pm. It will introduce attendees to the fundamental tools you’ll need to start seeing your house in a new light and examine some on-line resources for house history research.

Where: 1654 DeKalb Street, Norristown, PA 19401

Cost: $20

Spots are limited. To RSVP call 610-272-0297 or send us an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
