The mission of the Quakertown Historical Society in Bucks County, Pennsylvania is "to preserve, collect and document the history of Quakertown for future generations to come." The Society maintains a complex of three buildings: the Burgess Foulke House, a stone structure built in 1812 by the father of Quakertown's first burgess (mayor); the Market Place Museum, a renovated barn from the late 1800s; and Liberty Hall, near the site where the Liberty Bell rested in Quakertown in 1777 on its way to Allentown. The Quakertown Historical Society holds approximately 60 linear feet of archival materials dating from 1767 to the present, including local business and municipal ledgers, photographs, newpaper clippings, scrapbooks, deeds, and various other documents.
