Archival Adventures in Small Repositories
The Spring-Ford Area Historical Society was founded in 1984. Its mission is to promote and develop information of historical value for the people of Spring City (Chester County, Pa.) and Royersford (Montgomery County, Pa.). The Spring-Ford Area Historical Society Museum complex, located at the William Lewin Plantation House dating from 1861, offers a research library and houses displays on local industry and culture.
The Society's archival collections, which total over 80 linear feet of materials dating primarily from the late 19th century to the late 20th century, consist of photographs, negatives, postcards, scrapbooks, deeds, family histories, obituaries and funeral records, court dockets, business records, ephemera, and other research materials.
