Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Brinton Association of America to: Preserve, maintain and operate the William Brinton 1704 House, grounds, buildings and collections. Provide an interpretation of Quaker life in the Brandywine Valley during the early colonial period. Preserve and promote the history of the Brinton Family in America.


The Brinton 1704 House Museum is a restored Quaker home located in Delaware County near West Chester, Pennsylvania, and is a designated National Historic Landmark. The 1704 House is operated as a historic museum and is open for public tours on Saturdays and Sundays from May 1 to October 31.

The House was built in 1704 in Pennsylvania Colony by William Brinton, Jr., who moved to the American Colonies in 1684 with his parents to escape religious persecution of Quakers in England. Today, his descendants own and operate the house museum, and have dedicated the site to expanding our understanding of the local community and history.

Would you recommend Brinton 1704 House and Historic Site?

by Susan M. (January 8, 2014)
This non-profit has a new, very enthusiastic director - an energizing atmosphere to work in. Besides working in a wonderful old house, there are lots of opportunities to develop genealogical research skills, learn about the house's role in the Revolutionary War, and share history stories with visitors - young and old.
