The Evesham Historical Society
The Evesham Historical Society is a non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to understanding, preserving, and sharing history of Evesham Township in an effort to promote a better appreciation of our American heritage. In 1988, the Historical Society took ownership of the John Inskeep/Higginbotham property, consisting of an early 18th century farmhouse, privy, and surrounding lawn. The old butchers shop, originally located on East Main Street, has also been moved to the site. Through the efforts of society members, two floors of the house have been refurbished and furnished as a museum of local history, including a display of Native American artifacts, a colonial kitchen, and an old school room. A dining room, meeting room, and four bedrooms display furniture, toys, clothing, and other articles from the 18th and 19th centuries. An herb garden, orchard, and flowerbeds now surround the house. The society continues in its efforts to refurbish the buildings, maintain the property, provide public access to the museum, and to promote interest in Evesham’s past.
