The Greater Monessen Historical society made the following announcements.
Shop the Heritage Museum Shoppe
For great Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gifts, please shop at the Monessen Heritage Museum Shoppe. There are great ethnic cookbooks and various works on local history that make excellent presents for that special someone.
The Historical Society co-sponsors the Mon Valley Genealogy Forum with Monessen Public Library and Cultural Center. The group meets the third Monday of each month at the Library at 5:30p.m. Come and learn about your family tree!
The Greater Monessen Historical Society wants to help with spring cleaning! Bring items of possible historical value to the Monessen Heritage Museum during regular operating hours, Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Society is looking for old photos, documents and memorabilia that showcase Monessen’s ethnic and industrial heritage.
To prepare for future exhibits, the Society is researching Monessen’s African American heritage, the history of local organized crime, and various old businesses. If anyone wishes to help or has information, please contact the Historical Society.
The museum is located at 505 Donner Avenue and is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is always free!
