…in other words

It is our goal to keep history alive for future generations! We promote national and local history with strong emphasis on preservation of real estate and artifacts as well as archival material. Founded in 1880, the Society archive contains one of the oldest and most comprehensive repositories for genealogical resources in northwestern Pennsylvania, an extensive library of regional and state history and local authors, a large manuscript and photo collection and a massive collection of records of the Erie Railroad as well as Talon Zipper Company. We’d love to have you stop in and see the amazing things we have…we’ll see you soon!
