We are the official historical society of the county. Our purpose is to discover, procure, and preserve the records of the history of Schuylkill County and any materials which may illustrate that history. The Society has a priceless collection of historical materials of Schuylkill County that is used by members, researchers, scholars and the general public. We invite you to browse this site and come visit us at 305 North Centre Street in Pottsville.
The Schuylkill County Historical Society honors the memory of Ione Geier who died on April 11, 2014. She was a noted social historian of the county who graciously donated copies of her book, "Schuylkill Stories", (B-079 on the General Books page), to the Society.
