The Greater Monessen Historical Society released the following.
Museum Closed on Saturdays Through March
The Monessen Heritage Museum will be closed on Saturdays through the month of March. Special arrangements can be made for groups or individuals, who would like to tour the facility when we are closed. Please contact the museum to arrange a time.
As we are a volunteer based organization, our hours may be affected by the weather. During the winter months, please call ahead if you are planning on visiting to make sure someone is at the museum to welcome you.
Renew Your Membership
Membership Renewal for 2019 and the annual fund appeal for the Greater Monessen Historical Society are underway. Please return your membership renewal, so we can update the records. We depend on your generosity to sustain us and help us grow! We need your donations to continue the Annex renovation work! Memberships cover the expenses of keeping the museum open and preserving local history. Gift memberships make great gifts! Individual memberships are $15 a calendar year with family memberships being $20. Business memberships are $50.
GMHS is looking for individuals willing to present a lecture or program on local history or families in 2019. If interested, please contact the museum.
Do you have talents to share? Do you have spare time? Do you want to give back to the community? Do you enjoy local history? If so, please consider joining our group and volunteering at the Museum. Call for details.
The Historical Society is also searching for interested individuals who are able to create models of well-known Monessen buildings that can be displayed inside the Monessen Heritage Museum.
