Benjamin Parry is known as the “Father of New Hope”. When he named his flour mill, New Hope Flour Mill, the name, New Hope, later replaced the town’s former name, Coryell’s Ferry in 1837. Parry was a community leader in the late 18th and early 19th Centuries, spurring commerce and industry in New Hope for nearly half a century.

Since its founding in 1958, the New Hope Historical Society has made a significant progress preserving historical and cultural aspects of New Hope.

Efforts that began with the Parry Barn and the Parry Mansion Museum continue to go forward. The furnishings of the 8 rooms reflect 125 (1775-1900) years of decorative changes experienced by the Parry family. Each room represents a different time period during which the Parry’s occupied the mansion. It was the inspiration of Charles Lamar, noted decorative historian and Interior designer.

Since 1966, the New Hope Historical Society has maintained this splendid mansion house museum, the centerpiece of New Hope as a tribute to the American experience.
