Washington County History & Landmarks Foundation


Washington County History & Landmarks Foundation is a private, non-profit educational organization which encourages the preservation of buildings, landmarks and structures which are deemed representative of the cultural, architectural and historic heritage of Washington County, Pennsylvania.

Programs and Services

  • Incorporated in 1973, the WCH&LF has been instrumental in locating, identifying and listing properties for its own landmark certification program as well as listing individual structures and districts on the National Register of Historic Places. Since its inception, the foundation has been successful in helping many historic building owners in the preservation of their structures. Advice and referrals are only part of our mission.
  • Landmarks offices are located in the 1806 John White stone house, located at the entrance to Washington County Fairgrounds. The heirloom garden at its entrance is lovingly maintained by Washington County Master Gardeners. During the annual county fair, exhibits highlighting various aspects of county history are on full display for the public.
  • Included this year will be the research and presentations given on local "Cemeteries and Burial Grounds." We discuss the architectural aspect, as well as the significance of persons, circumstances and statistics of these historical sites. Crypts, unmarked Black burials, a potter's field, family plots, the meaning of headstone symbols, all are represented in photo and file.
  • This summer concludes a yearlong data management and digital storage project, generously funded by a WCCF Capacity Building grant. With the purchase of needed equipment and supplies H&L will be able to continue the process with minimal expense after the grant deadline.
  • Partnerships with other historical organizations continues to be a priority with Washington County History & Landmarks.
