Commission History

Uwchlan Township Historical Commission was founded in 1975 to promote historic preservation within the township and in conjunction with the National Bicentennial celebration. The commission meets in the historic John Cadwalader House located at 21 North Village Avenue on the second Thursday of each month except December.

Township Owned Properties

The 2 township owned properties, Edith P. Moore School House and the Cadwalader House are open the first Sunday each month from April to November. Located in the Cadwalader House is the Frances Matthews Library, where historical documents from the Township’s past are archived. The facilities are also equipped with scanning equipment to preserve pictures and documents and return the originals to their owner without delay.

Lionville Historical District

The Lionville Historical District was established in 1980. Presently the Historical Commission is cataloging all buildings in the township built before 1950 as required by county and state regulations.
