About the Plymouth Meeting Historical Society

Organized in 1952, The Plymouth Meeting Historical Society gained stature when it succeeded in saving the Village of Plymouth Meeting from the threat of the proposed Blue Route Expressway. Through the efforts of the Society, the Village of Plymouth Meeting was placed on the National Register of Historic Districts in 1971. The adjacent Village of Cold Point was added to the Register in 1982 and became a further protection against highway expansion.

The purpose of the Society is:

  • To compile and disseminate information relating to the history of Plymouth Meeting and its vicinity;
  • To identify, acquire, preserve and/or restore, as appropriate, buildings and landmarks of historical architectural or natural significance;
  • To identify, acquire, and preserve printed and manuscript material, artifacts, and memorabilia;
  • To conduct and sponsor historical research for educational purposes.

The Plymouth Meeting Historical Society is dedicated to the preservation of Plymouth and Whitemarsh Townships.
