Do I need a Certificate of Insurance (COI) ?

We recommend you have one. It’s to protect you and us.  It’s fairly inexpensive. Let us know if you have an issue obtaining one.


I want to sell food.  Can I?

Maybe. Contact us for more details.

Why is the Historical Society hosting the Heritage Festival?

Because we love Haverford Township and the super cool, often unknown by most, history of the township and the surrounding area. We also are in desperate need of funds to help maintain the buildings and our collection. Any proceeds raised from the Heritage Festival will directly benefit the Historical Society! Also, the Festival is super fun! If you have ideas, please join us in planning. It takes a village, as the saying goes. Learn More
