To collect, preserve, and interpret the history and genealogy of the people of Cameron County, Pennsylvania.
The collection has been dubbed the most comprehensive collection in the area. There are over 15,000 items on display and about that many more in storage.
The Lumber industry, which dominated the County for about 50 years, is well represented with rare tools and photos. The dynamite, iron smelting, tanning and other industries are similarly represented. There are also many farm implements and farm related photos on display.
There is a large military collection, with extensive photos and militaria from the Civil War (include rare photos of the 42nd PA Bucktail Regiment), WWI, WWII, the Korean War and Viet Nam Conflict. There is also a section about the local C.C.C. Camps.
Throughout the Museum are hundreds of every day items from ages ago; toys; dolls; tools; a general store and post office; cameras, a working 1896 Regina Music Box; mounted trophy bucks and other animals and birds; medical and mortician tools; one-of-a-kind wood carvings, paintings, human hair quillings; women's period clothing and accessories, school items and so much more!
Please afford yourself enough time to see the entire collection. You
wouldn't want to miss any of it!
