SPOTLIGHT: Langhorne Community Memorial Association

100th Anniversary of the Richardson House

The Langhorne Community Memorial Association will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the opening of the historic Richardson House to the public in 1921 with an Open House on Thursday November 11th, Veterans Day, from 10:00am to 1:00pm.

The House will also be open on Saturday, November 13th.

Located at the intersection of Maple and Bellevue Avenues in Langhorne Borough, the House is a tribute to those who served in World War I from Langhorne Borough, Langhorne Manor Borough, Penndel Borough, Hulmeville Borough and Middletown Township. A plaque listing their names is on the eastern wall of the building. The names include not only those who served in the military but nurses, doctors, and religious leaders.

The Richardson House served as the home of the American Red Cross, the Langhorne Sorosis, the YWCA, the Jesse W. Soby Post and has been the meeting place of many organizations.  Today it is the headquarters of the Peace Center and the Four Lanes End Garden Club.

A board of directors with representatives from each of the boroughs and the township oversee the building and property which includes the adjoining park.

For information about the Open House or use of the Richardson House, call 215-421-5588.
