About Us!

 

We are here to preserve Susquehanna County's History, and to allow the public to learn their heritage here. We have a Museum that is FREE to the Public! There is also a Genealogy Research Department that can be used for just $10.00 a day by non-members (free to members). We also provide ways for research to be done if you can't come in, just check out our Research Page for more details. If you want to be a member you can pay the annual $30.00 membership fee, and that gives you access on any regular business day to look through the materials for free and you will receive a copy of our Annual Journal. (Members still have to pay for any print outs and copies made while researching).

There is no sign telling you where Monument St is, so it might be tricky to spot, but it begins on Lake Ave at the top of the green where there is a small parking lot and turns right and comes down past the post office and ends at Maple St. Our building is right after the post office, at the corner of Monument and Maple.

*If using a GPS or looking up directions online the address may come up as  Monument Square instead of Street. If you are parking in front of our building PLEASE pull in from Lake Ave and NOT Maple St, it is a one way street.  There is metered parking nearby if there is no space available in front of our building.
