Perkasie Historical Society

covered bridge Carousel Museum Stout

Perkasie Historical Society, founded in 1954, strives to help preserve the history of Perkasie Borough. Perkasie is located approximately 30 miles north of Philadelphia. This volunteer organization relies on the support of the community as it cares for the four historic venues: the South Perkasie Covered Bridge, the Perkasie Carousel, Perkasie Museum and the Stout Family Cemetery.

All are welcome to attend our carousel openings, meetings, and other community activities.

Come join the Historical Society and help us acquire and preserve History!
