Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Like most non-profit historical organizations, our need is volunteers. At the moment, our society has individuals who are dedicated but they are up in age. Volunteers are an ongoing need especially since the medium age of our volunteers is 60+. We are taking steps to target the younger generations. We want them to get excited about history and to join our organization and eventually volunteer.

Genealogical and Archival Research

The Union County Historical Society has their office located in the historic Union County Courthouse on South Second Street in Lewisburg, PA. The office is the primary location for genealogical research. The office works in conjunction with the archival staff located at the Dale/Engle/Walker House located in Lewisburg, Pa. for more intensive and extensive research on an item in our collection.

Population(s) Served

In 2001, the Society accepted, through a bequest, the Dale/Engle/Walker property. The 137-acre property includes a 2,900 square foot limestone house built in 1793 and outbuildings. On Sundays throughout the summer, the society holds tours at the house to visit the exhibits that are on display for that year. The society has a theme each year and provides a program on a specific Sunday in each month that takes about that theme and provides hands on experience as well.

Population(s) Served

The Union County Historical Society holds five programs for the 4th and 5th grade students from the Union County Schools. This program is to educate and inform these youngsters on the life of Union Countians from the late 18th Century through the early 19th Century. For many of these students, their ancestors settled in this area. The program is designed to visit local historical sites and give the students a brief history of the site and what it was used for. Sites included in this program are a one room schoolhouse, jail, buggy shop, farmstead, etc. Students get to view artifacts and items from this era and in some instances get a “hands” on experience of an industry during this time such as ropemaking.

Population(s) Served

Throughout the year, the Union County Historical Society holds programs on various issues, events and themes that deal with Union County, the state of PA and even our country. These programs are held at the Union County Public Library and the Library's extensions throughout the county.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Goals of the organization is set forth in our mission statement. Our mission statement is Exploring Union County's past to inform the present and the future. This is our main goal. We also want to bring Union County's history full circle by showing how Union County history has contributed to state and national history.

Our second goal is to get the youngsters of the county interested in history. We want them to understand how important history is not only locally, but on the state and national level as well.

We offer free programming at the local library on a bimonthly basis (sometimes monthly).
