The King of Prussia Historical Society was first established in 1953. The Society was rejuvenated in April 2012 and is incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)(3) with tax exempt status.
Upper Merion Township has had a rich history beginning with its inception three hundred years ago. The aim of the Society is to share this history and to preserve its richness for future generations.
The Society organizes a variety of historical presentations throughout the year open to the general public. The Speaker Series, generally preceded by a short business meeting, is scheduled monthly with the exception of July and August. In the summer of 2013, the Society moved their operations from the Upper Merion Township Building to Christ Church (Old Swedes) in Swedesburg, PA.
The Society has a long term goal to move its headquarters to the King of Prussia Inn.
