We invite you to review our calendar of events that is posted on our site, and we welcome you to join us.
To educate the public about the history and culture of New Hope and Bucks County, as well as to preserve the Parry Mansion and Parry Barn.
Since its founding in 1958, the New Hope Historical Society has made a significant progress preserving historical and cultural aspects of New Hope.
Efforts that began with the Parry Barn and the Parry Mansion Museum continue to go forward. The furnishings of the 8 rooms reflect 125 (1775-1900) years of decorative changes experienced by the Parry family. Each room represents a different time period during which the Parry’s occupied the mansion. It was the inspiration of Charles Lamar, noted decorative historian and Interior designer.
Since 1966, the New Hope Historical Society has maintained this splendid mansion house museum, the centerpiece of New Hope as a tribute to the American experience.
