The Scottdale Historical Society, Inc., incorporated in July 1987 and was reorganized in 2005.
Its mission is to collect, preserve and archive the Scottdale area's rich cultural, industrial and architectural history for the enjoyment and education of present and future generations.
Scottdale, Pennsylvania is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This listing is the first step in preserving our town, once one of the richest towns in America.
The founding board initiated the Coal and Coke Heritage Festival and purchased the Peter Loucks Homestead with the proceeds of that festival. It also bought the ground and built the gazebo in downtown Scottdale.
We will work with the local government and will help formulate preservation ordinances and raise awareness of the many historically significant properties.
We will pursue the preservation of as many of the community's historic artifacts, stories and properties as possible.
We will work with area organizations to promote our beautiful town, with its tree-lined streets and walkable neighborhoods.
As part of our effort to meet or goals, we've created a Wish List of items and opportunities for volunteers.
The Scottdale Historical Society holds its office election in January each year.
