Welcome to a treasure trove of wonders!
Our February Historical Speaker Series Karen Amos, researcher and writer, spoke on the Veil Maternity Hospital that operated in Corry during the 1920’s and 30’s. Dr. Charles Janes operated homes for unwed mothers and an extensive adoption program for the babies born at the Veil Hospitals. The public was encouraged to share their knowledge on this topic. Over 150 people attended the very successful sessions.
WinterFest was held on Saturday Feb. 4th and was very successful! Our 'Polar Bear Tours' and photograph event were both hits, along with the snowy polar bear carved outside. We thank all of our many volunteers and guest for a great day! Impact Corry and the WinterFest volunteers worked hard for a successful day!

Recently, visitors flew in from Buffalo to visit our museum. We had a great visit as they toured and explored our 15,000 artifacts. The displays were a hit! Go to danbily.tumblr.com to see a blog on their adventures! Our museum will be posted on their blog shortly.
Volunteer workers are at the museum most Thursdays (10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p. m.) for visits. If you would like to setup an appointment for a different day or time, please call the museum at 814-664-4749 or Ann Clark at 814-664-8740.
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.
The Board took action by hiring attorney Elliott J. Ehrenreich of Knox McLaughlin Gornall & Sennet, P.C. to update the bylaws so that they accurately reflect our existence as an incorporated, non-profit organization. On August 22, 2016, we presented the bylaws for the member's consideration; the vote was unanimous in accepting them.
