The Northampton Area Historical Society announces the cancellation of its Fall Garage and Mum Sale due to the pandemic. The annual sales have been popular for many people who have supported the society for many years. The pandemic has also forced the cancellation of our monthly open houses and our ongoing programs on the “Businesses of a Bygone Era”. We are very thankful for the members of the community who have used the pandemic lockdown to cull their personal collections of business artifacts and made donations of these items to our collection. We hope to announce a return of our Business programs as soon as possible. Please contact us if you have items or monetary donations that you may wish to contribute.
The station is open the 3rd Sunday of every month from May through October, from 1 to 4 pm. Group tours are available by appointment year-round, call 610-262-8198 or 610-570-5083.
Who We Are
The Northampton Area Historical Society was founded in 1977 by a group of Northampton residents interested in preserving the history of Northampton Borough. The Northampton Area Historical Society since its inception has been responsible for the restoration and maintenance of the historical Siegfried Station. The Society also operates a museum at the site containing documents and artifacts which highlight the history of Northampton Borough. The museum is open the third Sunday of every month through the spring, summer and fall.
We are now accepting membership applications and renewals for 2020.
