Mission

Historical Museum and Educational Society

Programs and Services

  • The Washington County Historical Society administers several sites—the Francis J. LeMoyne House, the LeMoyne Crematory, the Norma K. Grimes Research Library and the Washington County Frontier History Center. The Historical Society utilizes these sites to educate the public through offering tours, special events, outreach programs and research services. As the repository for Washington County heritage, the Historical Society maintains an extensive collection of documents and artifacts.T
  • As the Washington County Historical Society preserves all aspects of the county's history, it has the unique ability to serve a wide range of age and ethnic groups. As the collection covers so many themes and topics, the Historical Society is able to provide customized tours and research opportunities for all types of groups and individuals, based on their particular interests. Further, through free outreach programming, the Historical Society is able to reach individuals of all income levels.
  • In recent years, the Historical Society has made it a priority to upgrade its programming, not only in quantity, but in quality. The Historical Society's success in this endeavor can be measured by the resulting rise in demand for this programming. This includes presentations not only within Washington County, but at statewide events such as the Pennsylvania Museums Annual Conference and the Colonial Dames Annual State Meeting.
  • Offering over 25 programs in the form of tours, special events and customized presentations, nearly 70 times annually the Historical Society is able to effectively educate various audiences on a number of subjects. In the past two years the Historical Society has reached over 8,000 individuals through visitation to its sites, attendance at special events and outreach to local historical organizations, senior centers and schools ranging from elementary to the college level.
