Historical Society Establishes Endowment
Would you like to research your family’s history? Read a newspaper from 100 years ago? Learn about our region’s historical architecture? Discover how the United States Homestead Act traces its roots to Susquehanna County? Then a trip to the Historical Society is on your Bucket List. For decades the Montrose location of the Susquehanna County Free Library and the Historical Society has shared a home on Monument Square in the heart of Montrose. With the upcoming construction of the new library on the outskirts of town the Historical Society will be able to utilize the entire current building for its vast holdings. Many local historical items that have long been in storage will now be available for viewing. Genealogical and historical research facilities will be expanded. However, this expansion will not be without cost. A New Susquehanna County Historical Society Fund has recently been established at The Community Foundation to help provide support for the Historical Society’s proposed renovations and will be used to cover annual expenses so that future generations can learn about our heritage that stretches back centuries, includes our current daily life, and expands far into the future. In addition to being stewards of our past, the current Board of Trustees of the Library and Historical Society is looking forward to this exciting period in the Historical Society’s upcoming history. The Contributions to the new Historical Society Fund are always welcome to help carry on our common legacy and can be sent to The Community Foundation 270 Lake Avenue Montrose, PA 18801 or made online at www.community-foundation.org.
