Additionally, many people from the tri-state area and beyond contribute their own stories.

White and others from his years of school administration in Cross Creek, Hopewell and Jefferson Townships in Washington County, PA.
  • Conduct regular programs and tours of local historical sites. Annual program at the Meadowcroft Museum of Rural Life.
  • Operate the Avella History Fair in September each year that was operated for many years by Research Society founding member Kathryn Slasor.
