Peonies were grown as a crop on the Willits farm, lovingly cared for by Bill Willits, son of Frank who purchased the farm in 1885


The West Room

In 1992, the Township Supervisors invited the Society’s collection to be housed in the historic Pierce-Willits house at 659  Smithbridge Road, which is where the Society’s headquarters and the Virginia Merion DeNenno History & Educational Center are located.  Over the years, a small museum was developed and is the legacy of Ginny DeNenno, for whom our new museum is named.  The museum was repainted, reorganized, and reopened with a new look in June 2014, and features exhibits on early maps and deeds, early schools, when the trains came to Concord, and Home and Farm Life in the 1800’s.

We look forward to seeing you at our Museum ~
