The Tyrone Area Historical Society is located in central Pennsylvania. Founded in 1990, the Society is committed to the stories of Tyrone, Snyder Township, Warriors Mark and Sinking Valley in Blair and Huntingdon counties. Our mission is to encourage the community to preserve and share the unique history of Tyrone and the surrounding communities.
The Tyrone History Museum is closed for the winter, and will re-open April 3, 2016.
The TAHS office and library are open year-round on Wednesday from 1 to 4 PM, or at other times by appointment. Call 814-684-5141 to arrange your visit.
When the snow finally comes (and we know it will!), snow scientists at Cal Tech have compiled many great activities that you and your favorite kids can do in the snow - and none of them involves a shovel! Go to snowcrystals.com, where we found this great photo.
YMCA "treasures" on display
One hundred years ago, this Bible-themed painting was dedicated in the YMCA. It has been cleaned and restored and is now hanging in its temporary home at the TAHS Museum.
The Historical Society also has other treasures from the old "Y" including a time capsule, the cornerstone, and the safe.
The painting and other items from Tyrone's past can be seen at the Tyrone History Museum during regular hours throughout the fall.
