Education, preservation, and restoration of that which is historically significant is the driving force behind the Lower Providence Historical Society. Founded and informally established in 1997, it was incorporated February 12, 2001. Among its many diverse projects the society is focusing its major effort on the stabilization of the Casselberry house.

 
The Lower Providence Historical Society was founded and informally established in 1997; it was incorporated February 12, 2001 and established as a 501C3. One of its major projects is the stabilization and preservation of the historic Casselberry House located in the Evansburg section of the Township.

Doug Hager, President of the Lower Providence Historical Society said, the Casselberry House is owned by the Township and the Lower Providence Historical Society entered into an agreement with the Township to restore and maintain the Casselberry house so the Society may use it as their headquarters and meetings site.

The house is historically important to the township due to its age, architecture and structural changes by the Casselberry family who owned the house for over 150 years. The core of the house was built in 1734. There were five additions to the house reflecting the changing needs of its inhabitants. The Casselberry family was a locally prominent family throughout the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. One of the significant events that occurred at the house was the visit of George Washington during the encampment of the Continental Army at Valley Forge.

Given the age of the structure there are many immediate needs in order to stabilize the house. The Historical Society has done renovations that included stabilizing the foundation, renovating the main front room, replacing the bath room, painting the exterior trim, replacing windows, repairing the floors on the first floor, replacing and upgrading the electrical and plumbing among a number of other maintenance items. There are still many other areas of restoration and preservation that need to be completed.
