Lisa Puckly will be host for this event. We hope to offer this monthly.

The Corry Area Historical Society, Inc and Museum would like to take the time to thank everyone for stopping to visit the museum in 2017.  We have met so many people from all over this year.  There were some individuals staying at the various places in town who called and we were able to open for them to tour the museum. Some local families had people visiting and they were able to stop in and also see us.  The calls for research were unbelievable and  we made so many new  friends.  We had well over 1500 guests stopping in when we were open or who called and made appointments.  The Victorian Christmas at the Kibler house was a great success.  Our monthly Historical Speaker meetings were attended by many, at times we had a hard time finding enough chairs because it was a full house. We don't want to forget the non-profits that have backed us and been there when we needed them. Thank you!

We are looking forward to 2018 and all the events we have planned:

  • Monday afternoons - you can call the museum and if a volunteer is there, they will open for you.

  • Any Thursday 10 a.m.- 2 p.m.  - a great group of volunteers are working... you may even find it hard to find a place to park.

  • Winterfest is Saturday February 3rd - 11a.m.-4 p.m.-  We will be open, identify pictures, making snow people, & more!

  • March 24th - Saturday 10:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. - We will be cleaning and organizing,  Everyone is welcome!

  • April 23 - Monday 7:00 p.m. - We will begin our 2018 Historical Speaker Series with a talk by Judy Acker about the French Creek Watershed. This educational outreach program has been sponsored by the French Creek Valley Conservancy and the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy through a grant from the RK Mellon Foundation - working together for the welfare and conservation of the French Creek Watershed.

We are beginning our 2018 membership drive, please consider joining as your support is important to us. A membership form needs to be filled out, signed, and sent in to us. Thank you for your contribution!  We are looking forward to another successful year with many wonderful events.

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!  Many volunteers and almost 3000 visitors gave their time, talent, and donations to support the museum.  Your generosity is much appreciated!
