Merion Liberty Troop

Our Troop History

Merion Liberty Troop started on 10-10-10  (October 10, 1910)
This group is for Boy Scouts and their parents of Merion Liberty Troop is one of the oldest Boy Scout troops in the U.S.
Originally founded in 1910, and chartered by the Boy Scouts of America in 1917, Merion Liberty Troop has a proud history in Scouting that continues strong today.
Merion Liberty Troop is, to our knowledge, the last remaining Boy Scout Troop to have earned the designation "Liberty Troop," and the right to wear the distinctive "L" patch on the left uniform sleeve, for its achievements in selling Liberty Bonds during World War I.  In addition under the L members of the troop wear a 100 year patch.

Meetings are held at the Merion Scout House, 625 Hazelhurst Ave (rear), Merion Station, PA, 7:30 p.m. Mondays during the school year. All are welcome to attend, see what scouting is all about. Map and Directions
