About

Founded in 1975, The Wissahickon Historical Society's purpose is to preserve the local historical buildings, artifacts and folklore of the historic Wissahickon Valley.  Our headquarters, the Whitpain Public School 1895 building, is located at the corner of Skippack Pike and School Road in Blue Bell, Montgomery County, PA.  Our building houses a LIBRARY and MUSEUM of local artifacts. The building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in December, 2006 for its unique architecture and for its role in education in Whitpain Township.  Click to view the official National Register nomination form.  Membership to the Wissahickon Valley Historical Society is open to all.  Click to view the WVHS Membership Form.  To learn more about what the WVHS is up to, check out our Newsletters.
