The  Sharon Hill Historical Society was incorporated in 1991. It was founded by a group of citizens who wished to protect the historic railroad station on Sharon Avenue from demolition. The station  which is  eligible for the national register of historic places is in the process of being restored.  After all these years, it is still our main concern; however, in the meantime, we have learned much more about our town, gathered 200 members, have a quarterly newsletter and recently published a book, “Images of America - Sharon Hill”.


We have four officers and eight participating board members who assist with various projects, such as, the station project,  the archives, our Christmas Tea, clean- ups at the railroad station, and the recent handling and mailing of over one hundred of the books mentioned above.


The Society has members from all over the country including: Arizona, Arkansas, California,  Connecticut, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Maryland,  New York, New Jersey, North Carolina,  Tennessee, Texas and Virginia and of course Pennsylvania.  Many are former residents who remember Sharon Hill as a “great place to grow up” and a town which still claims their interest.


Through the newsletter, we try to keep the membership updated on new happenings and also give them some background of the history of the town.
