Opening the door to our past
Welcome to the home of the Middletown Township Historical Society (MTHS)

MTHS is dedicated to preserving our township’s rich history and artifacts that made Middletown what it is today. We typically meet the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. (except for summer months) in the Middletown Township Building and we invite you to participate. Better yet, consider becoming a member today!

The Door Knocker
In 2009 MTHS adopted this door knocker as our symbol for the historical society because it symbolizes our mission, “opening the door to our past”. This ornate piece of hardware came from the Blackhorse Inn that was once located on the Baltimore Pike and Edgmont Great Road intersection (now Rts.1 & 352). The hotel was torn down in 1939 to make way for the widening of Baltimore Pike. The door knocker was rescued right before demolition.
