Preserving the past in Pennsylvania
As an avid reader of Farm Collector, I would like to share some pictures and information about our collection of antiques and plain old farm tools, implements and even some machinery. We are in southeastern Pennsylvania and are the Concord Township Historical Society with a farm section titled “Farm Life.”
We are only able to open once a month due to shortage of people to man the exhibits. We do research on the origins of our township and its many beautiful farms, now turned into housing projects due to exploding growth around the Philadelphia area. Collections of deeds, pictures, documents, etc. create a look into the past all the way back to maps of the area by William Penn and his associates.
