 Welcome to Goschenhoppen!

 

Goschenhoppen is one of the oldest continuously existing Pennsylvania German communities in America.  This geographic region occupies a small corner of southeastern Pennsylvania in Montgomery County.  The Goschenhoppen Historians Inc., was founded in 1964 in order to preserve the folk culture of this area's earliest immigrant settlers, known as the Pennsylvania Dutch.


Incorporated as an educational organization on June 4, 1965, it has grown and prospered and has met, admirably, the many varied challenges of its social commitment to foster and maintain respect for the ingenuity, faith and determination  of these settlers.

 

Today, the Goschenhoppen Historians maintain several museums, a library, and offer educational and seasonal events and fundraisers throughout the year.
