THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS TO INFORM EVERYONE that the Redbank Valley Historical Society has reorganized into the Redbank Valley Historical Society, Incorporated as of January 29, 2020. We have organized as a non-profit organization and are in the process of applying for 501(c)(3) status. Our mission remains the same to research and compile historical data to be used in the publication of a book of the area. That book, which we have called lovingly “The Big Book” is now in the editing stage and we hope to publish it in the fall.
We are seeking a location to set up a historical center to display artifacts of the area and a place that can be used to help people do genealogical studies.
We will continue to entertain guest speakers to present interesting subject matters of local history to the group. We will also from time to time conduct field trips to various places of historical interest to the group.
Membership will be Single $12.00, Family $24.00, Lifetime $100.00 and Youth $6.00. If you are interested contact 814-221-6225.
Next date of meeting and location TBA.
