The next presentation at the Donora Historical Society is scheduled for Saturday, February 7 at 1 p.m., weather permitting, and is titled "Greetings from Donora." It will showcase vintage postcards of Donora and the stories behind them.

The presentations for March and April will not be held at the Smog Museum. We are encouraging all to attend the Civil War presentations instead, some of which will be presented by local historical societies from Donora, Monongahela and Monessen.

CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS! If you have an interest in history, research, archiving, fundraising, working with students of all ages, working on some amazing projects, or working with people from all over the world, we may have an opportunity for you at the Donora Historical Society. We are always on the lookout for individuals who can help promote and advance the Society.

A full list of our accomplishments for 2014 and projects for 2015 can be found on our website by clicking on the "About Us" page.

Due to the success of our fourth annual Cement City Home and Walking Tour held last October 2014, we will be hosting two tours in 2015, the first of which will be held on Sunday, May 3rd at 1 p.m. The other will be held in October. If you have any questions about Cement City or one of our Home and Walking Tours, please consult our website and click the "Cement City" tab, or call or email the historical society. If you would like to RSVP for either tour, please contact the historical society by phone or email to be added to the list.

Once again the Donora Historical Society was invited back as a presenter for the Heinz History Center Affiliate Ambassador's Speaker Series held once a month on Saturdays. The Donora Historical Society is a Heinz History Center Affiliate member. On Saturday, June 13, 2015 we will be presenting Stan "The Man" Musial. The presentation is free with paid admission to the museum. Danish and coffee is served.
