Visit the Hilda Justice Artifacts Collection

Open by appointment. The Hilda Justice Building is the site of the artifacts collection at the Ambler Campus. Dedicated on November 6, 2011, to mark the 100th Anniversary, this collection reflects the rich history of the site.

The first students arrived 1911 when the school was founded as the Pennsylvania School of Horticulture for Women. In 1958 it merged with Temple University. The artifacts collection contains images, tools, awards and banners from the school and from the Woman’s National Farm and Garden Association that was founded at the Ambler Campus in 1914.
