The Millbrook Society is proud to operate the Amy B. Yerkes Museum located on the second floor in the historic Hatboro Baptist Church. The museum is open most Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:30.
The museum is named in honor of Amy B. Yerkes, a local educator who served many years as a dedicated teacher and then principal at the Loller Academy. It has served as a home for various collections of local memorabilia.
The general collection has grown to represent the growth of Hatboro and the surrounding areas. It represents the life of the community through domestic, commercial, religious, educational, military, civic and governmental artifacts. Our library, with its archive and photographs, complements our collections and helps to provide background materials for ongoing projects as well as our ongoing mission.
The Society participated in the Historical Society of Pennsylvania's Hidden Collections Initiative for Pennsylvania Small Archival Repositories in 2012. To see the result of the review, and a detailed list of the collections, click here.
Many of our items are donated by local residents or families who once had a connection here. We take great pride in being able to preserve and share these beloved pieces with others.
New items are always being added to our collections, so keep an eye on this page to review a list of our collections.
