Historic Fallsington, Inc. is a private, non-profit historic preservation organization and museum which has been preserving and sharing the 300-year-old village of Fallsington for over 65 years. The organization was founded in 1953 in response to land development pressures that threatened the historical integrity of the village, consisting of over 90 historic buildings from the 17th, 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries.  The village was significant as a religious, social and market center for the surrounding community, as well as a stopover point for stagecoach travelers. While in
residence at nearby Pennsbury Manor, William Penn attended religious services
in Fallsington.

Historic Fallsington Inc.’s mission is to preserve and maintain the historic structures under its stewardship for future generations and educate the public about the rich culture and history of the village of Fallsington. The museum’s Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall policy of the organization.  The Executive director implements policy as set forth by the Trustees. A small staff assists the director in daily operations and a dedicated group of volunteers support programming as needed. Internship opportunities are available to students to enhance their programs of studies in fields such as American history, architectural history, public history, art history, material culture, museum management, museum education, preservation, and cultural resource management.

We offer competitive pay and flexible work schedule provided your availability for Saturdays in the summer and special activities year-round. Salary and benefits are negotiable and commensurate with experience.
