The Historical Society of Montgomery County was formed in 1881 by county residents interested in collecting and sharing the legacy of Montgomery County. Since then, we have continued to support the community’s cultural heritage through preservation, interpretation, and outreach. We offer a research library, book $ gift shop, and exhibitions in our headquarters, and we own and maintain Historic Montgomery Cemetery & Park.

Starting on Tuesday March 1, 2022, we will be open to the public during our normal hours.

Appointments are not required, but are always encouraged.


The Historical Society of Montgomery County is located in a residential neighborhood in the northern part of Norristown. There is a parking lot directly behind the building available for visitors.
