Membership fees and generous donations have allowed the major restoration of the circa 1700’s Heller-Grist Mill and the 1860 “Pony” bridge, a cast and wrought iron bridge that once spanned the Saucon Creek. Funds further provided for the construction of a new barn in 2005, restoration of Hellertown's First Jail and much-needed major maintenance items for the current historic buildings. Also provided were minor updates to the Grist Mill, the 1800’s Miller's House, which serves as the Society’s Offices and the Tavern Room, a lower-level period-decor facility in the Grist Mill which is available to use for day and evening events – see information about this facility on the Tavern Room page.
All members receive a free subscription to the Society’s Newsletter which is published four times annually and free admission to many of the Society’s Events. Occasionally, the Society invites guest speakers to entertain and enlighten members and guests at the Tavern Room about informative historical and current issues impacting the area. Gift shop discounts of 10% are also offered to Society Members and discounted use of the Tavern Room facility varying with the level of membership. The different levels and benefits are described below:
