Description

The borough of Alburtis was incorporated in 1913 by the joining of two boroughs, Alburtis & Lockridge. The Alburtis-Lockridge Historical Society began in 1976, the year of our country's bicentennial. We are a group to preserve the history of the villages of Alburtis and Lock Ridge.

The Society calls home the former Lock Ridge Presbyterian Church. Museum possessions include the church's cornerstone, keepsakes from businesses and former businesses and many old photographs, including nearly 100 from 1906.

Join Us!

We are a small group of only about 12 individuals. We are always looking to increase our membership to expand our membership rolls & revitalize the organization.

Mission

Preserve the history of Alburtis & Lockridge boroughs, along with the outlying areas.

History

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
