Who We Are
We operate our museum and research facility to preserve and present the history of McKeesport and its surrounding communities for public education and enjoyment.
We're creating a community (members, visitors, and residents...past, present, and future) with a greater understanding and appreciation of this region's history and its diverse cultural heritage.
