What We’re Doing

Please call us or use Facebook for appointment to access our collection..

Programs: The Society held a number entertaining and informative programs including History of the Avanti Cigar Company, Mining in NEPA, Coal Mining and Urban Development, PA Gravity Railroads, “Like Leaves in a Storm” book signing, and Widows’ Wanderings. Research: Our volunteers handled over 50 research requests connecting people to their past. Preservation:  We made significant progress on organizing and filing our holdings, and continued upkeep and improvements on the Barton St property, including landscaping. Access and enjoyment: We now have regular public hours at our building on Saturday mornings; and added signage and benches to the Dunmore Nature Trail. 

None of this could have bee done without the help of members, volunteers and community partners such as Boy Scout Troop 66, the Dearly Departed Players, Dunmore Borough, and Riccardo's Market.
