Archival Adventures in Small Repositories
Springfield Township Historical Society [Bucks Co.]
The Springfield Township Historical Society (Bucks County, Pa.) was founded in 1980 and incorporated as a non-profit in 1984 to "enrich the lives of the residents of Springfield Township by assisting them in researching the history of their homes and families; and to promote and encourage the interest and preservation of the history of the township." Located in a renovated 1892 one-room school house, the Society's archival holdings comprise approximately 20 linear feet of materials dating from 1789 to the present. Materials relating to various township residents and organizations include original photographs, manuscripts, family papers and business records, deeds, and oral histories. There are also genealogy and subject files with newspaper clippings, research notes, and narrative histories.
