CCHS has served as Centre County’s official historical society for over one hundred years since 1904. In a fast paced world, it is more meaningful now than ever to preserve the stories and artifacts that keep our county history alive for future generations.

As the Historical Society continues to expand, the need for volunteer contributions becomes even more critical. Whether your interest is local history, guiding tours, gardening, research, event planning, office projects, collections, writing, handy projects, educational programming, there are many ways you can contribute to the Historical Society.
