The business and purpose of the Warwick Township Historical Society shall be to bring together those people interested in history, and especially in the history of Warwick Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Understanding the history of our community is basic to our democratic way of live, gives us a better understanding of our state and nation, and promotes a better appreciation of our American heritage.
The Society’s major function will be to discover and collect any material which may help to establish or illustrate the history of the area, including but not limited to: its exploration, settlement, development, and activities in peace and war; its progress in population, wealth, education, arts, science, agriculture, manufacture, trade, and transportation. It will collect printed material such as histories, genealogies, biographies, descriptions, gazetteers, directories, newspapers, pamphlets, catalogs, circulars, handbills, programs, and posters; manuscript material such as letters, diaries, journals, memoranda, reminiscences, rosters, service records, account books, charts, surveys, and field books; and museum material such as pictures, photographs, paintings, portraits, scenes, aboriginal relics, and material objects illustrative of life, conditions, events, and activities of the past.
The Society will provide for the preservation of such material and for its accessibility, as far as may be feasible, to all who wish to examine or study it, to cooperate with officials in insuring the preservation and accessibility of the records and archives of the county and of its cities, towns, villages, and institutions, and to undertake the preservation of historic buildings, monuments, and markers.
