We recently received a wonderful award from Erie Arts & Culture. "Applause Award: Corry Area Historical Society is a group of dedicated volunteers who revitalized a local historical society. Today, the Society is a key asset to the economic impact of Greater Corry, an educational partner to the School District of Corry, and a treasure trove of catalogued photographs, journals, newspapers, documents and objects that tell the story of Corry and its relevance to current and future generations. The Applause Award recognizes a dedicated individual or group whose outstanding volunteerism and/or financial contributions have advanced arts and culture."  www.erieartsandculture.org

The Board of Directors, members, and volunteers from the greater community have embarked on a journey of updating, preserving, and protecting the mission of the organization.  This has encompassed necessary work on the building itself, updating displays, and creating policies and procedures for guidance and a framework to work within.

We would like to thank the community for their continued support!  We also thank the non-profits that have backed us and have been there when we needed them. Many volunteers and almost 3000 visitors a year give their time, talent, and donations to support the museum. Your generosity is much appreciated!
