Ashbridge House, our headquarters, is located at 849 E. Lancaster Ave., \next to the Chick-Fil-A Restaurant in the Ashbridge Square Shopping Center along Route 30, East Caln Township.

Since we're an all-volunteer organization, we can't be open to the public every day. However, we are open from 1-4 PM every Sunday, except for major holidays. And we can arrange to be open on other occasions, if you contact us beforehand at: Info@downingtownareahistoricalsociety.org, or call   610-269-1709
