The interpretation, preservation and presentation of the history and culture of Thornbury Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania.

Thornbury Historical Society has moved to a new home!

We are now at the Douglass Cottage near the township building located on Cheyney University campus.

Our latest archival addition: c. 1760's colonial redware plate found in the wall of the Frazer house ruins. Possible "witch plate" placed there when the house was constructed to bring good luck to the family.
