The Berks History Center is now open to the public by appointment only. Call 610-375-4375 to schedule your visit. 



We are dedicated to sharing your #berkshistory with you! Our team has created a digital resource page, Berks History at Home and will continue to provide opportunity to explore the rich heritage of our county on our blog and social media platforms.

Join the movement!

The Berks History Center invites you to cultivate local food security by learning about the history of victory gardens and growing your own gardens at home, wherever possible.
