One of the primary purposes of the Society is to provide education about the history of the Township. This is accomplished in a number of ways:

School Outreach Program
Since 1995 the Society has hosted annual field trips to the Paper Mill House and Museum for all elementary schools in the Marple-Newtown school district. In 2005, 2nd graders from Delaware County Christian School began to participate in the annual program as well. In previous years, we have also invited home schoolers for a tour. Around 450 children visit the Paper Mill House and Museum every April. Opportunities also exist for High School students.

Costumed home schooled children greet and teach history to the public and private elementary 5th graders each year at the Paper Mill Museum.  This group is circa 1998.
