The Official Historical Society of Schuylkill County

About Us

Our Location


The Historical Society of Schuylkill County was incorporated in 1903. The name has changed to the Schuylkill County Historical Society but it is still 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 stay awhile, visit our site and come and browse our rooms. Our present location is in the historic Centre Street Grammar School that was constructed during the Civil War.
