Because at the Washington County Historical Society, History Matters.

We show it every day as we strive to preserve this region’s history.  Whether it’s through the collection of documents and artifacts that reveal the stories of our past, the construction of a new Research & Education Center, or the large-scale restoration project at the LeMoyne House – Western Pennsylvania’s only National Historic Landmark of the Underground Railroad, we're doing meaningful work today that will benefit future generations.

We exist as a center for preservation, research and education that inspires the discovery and sharing of our County’s remarkable history.


We Exist Because History Matters!

What can you do?

We ask that you please consider giving to WCHS's Annual Fund drive. Whether it's $25 or $5000, every donation helps! A collective effort will be needed to reach our goal, so we also ask that you share this email with your family, friends, and social networks.  We can accomplish our goal if everyone joins in!


About Us

The Washington County Historical Society administers several sites—the Francis J. LeMoyne House, the LeMoyne Crematory, the Norma K. Grimes Research Library and the Washington County Frontier History Center.  The Historical Society utilizes these sites to educate the public through offering tours, special events, outreach programs and research services.  As the repository for Washington County heritage, the Historical Society maintains an extensive collection of documents and artifacts.



The Washington County Historical Society endeavors to collect and preserve Washington County's history, to increase awareness and to educate the public about the history and national significance of Washington County.  It is also the responsibility of the Historical Society to preserve the sites under its administration.
