  • Provide living history experiences to the general public at its museum in Washington, PA. The Museum is improving its visitor facilities through its "On Track for the Future" capital campaign. An 18,000 square-foot Welcome & Education Center is to be built in the next few years that will vastly improve its capacity and quality of its programs.

The Museum has a large library and archives and four large buildings to house these materials.
