We have seen a trend toward families of deceased ones suggesting family and friends send a donation to the Hellertown Historical Society. This is sincerely appreciated by our Society members. Should you have questions concerning “memorials in lieu of flowers” for your loved one, please discuss them with your funeral director. Often the director will arrange for funds to go directly to the Society which relieves this burden for the family. You may also contact the Society at 610-838-1770. The funds received through memorials are used to maintain, refurbish and repair the various buildings, grounds and artifacts within the Society’s possession or these funds may be earmarked for a special purpose. The Society Staff will gladly discuss plans for these funds with you.
The Hellertown Historical Society (HHS) is dedicated to preserving the history and heritage of Hellertown and its people. In 1984, the Society was granted a 99 year lease from the Borough of Hellertown to occupy, restore, and maintain a major portion of Hellertown’s historical 35 acre Heller-Wagner Grist Mill tract and its buildings.
