Contribute to the Centre County Historical Society


“…for altho I shall receive no advantage from it in my lifetime, those that come after me will receive great benefit.”

-Col. Samuel Miles, 1803

Who today can argue with Colonel Miles’ vision? His generosity with land and water rights attracted settlers who established the foundation of our modern community.  The Centre County Historical Society invites you to follow in Col. Miles’ footsteps.

In a world that is increasingly virtual, it is now more meaningful than ever to preserve the stories and artifacts that keep our local history alive.
