WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Please renew your membership now .. thank you for your continuing support

The Society’s mission is to promote in citizens of all ages an interest and knowledge of past area events and people, instilling a sense of pride and cultural heritage. We invite you to re-join the growing number of Historical Society members who delight in learning more about the region’s extensive and fascinating past. Our members engage in a variety of public exhibits and programs, all sharing in the rich history of our past.

Your support helps the Historical Society’s mission every day; whether it is through access to rare books, manuscripts and objects, or through Living History and the other education programs we provide. The 8-Square School Social, the Historic Homes Tour & Quilt Show, the Antiques Show and the Artists Invitational Exhibition are just some of the many community events that we coordinate annually.

The Museum is a wonderful repository for artifacts and family heirlooms that have, primarily, been made in or used in and around Muncy. With its own history, the Clapp House provides an excellent backdrop, complimenting the rich collections known as “pieces of Muncy’s past.” The meeting room is multi-functional, perfect for public programs and special receptions. Its research library is one of the most extensive and comprehensive for genealogical information and assistance. Our second site is the fully-restored “8-Square,” a one room schoolhouse built in 1872 where classroom instruction is recreated through an active Living History program. The circa 1860s Packet Boat, the reconstructed passenger vessel that once traveled Pennsylvania’s canal system, and the Muncy Heritage Park and Nature Trail Project, support our education venue and are helping to reconnect Muncy to its Susquehanna River heritage.

Won’t you help us continue our mission by renewing your membership? Your support directly affects the success of your community museum. Membership dollars are the most important source of our annual income to help us maintain and sustain the Society’s historically rich holdings.

Membership dues also help us publish the Now and Then, the Society’s vehicle for providing a written account of the history and heritage of the West Branch Valley. The Now and Then, published three times a year, is a nationally recognized historical journal that has been published, every now and then, since 1868.

As a member there are many benefits to enjoy: special exhibits from private and MHSMH collections; subscription to the Now and Then; free admission to the museum, library & archives; invitations to exhibits and special membership events; year-round use of the MHSMH research library; informative lectures, seminars and living history performances; volunteer opportunities; day trips and history walks; and the opportunity to financially support the preservation of our rich heritage. Please help by re-joining today. Our local history is a legacy for future generations.
