Our society provides library services to the general public. This library includes many reference materials and volumes of historical information dating from the colonial period.

We have accumulated hundreds of deeds describing properties from our area as well as many files on other historical structures. Our deeds are listed by names of grantors and grantees. In addition, the library includes a surname vertical file. Also, we have many wills from the colonial period, indexed alphabetically by name.

Our resources include church records of our region, census records and many newspaper articles of historical interest. Stop by to view our numerous resources.

We have roughly 600 pictures with detailed descriptions, indexed by surname, location, church records, township, and borough.
