The Pottstown Historical Society was organized in 1936 by a direct descendant of John Potts, founder of Pottstown in Montgomery County, PA. The object of the organization is to gather and preserve records and historical landmarks for the community. Collections relate to Pottstown and Montgomery County history and include papers and records relating to the Potts and Rutter families and their iron furnaces; local newspapers; church and cemetery records; census records; city directories; yearbooks; photographs; oral histories; histories of Montgomery, Berks, and Chester Counties; and other materials. The Pottstown Historical Society's archival holdings comprise about 125 linear feet of materials dating from 1715 to the present.
