Clifford Township Historical Society

Northeastern PA History Comes Alive in Clifford Township

The Clifford Township Historical Society was formed in 2006. Since then, they have been able to preserve and restore the area’s history thanks to grants and hardworking volunteers.

The organization operates the Museum of Local History, where visitors have the chance to step back in time to learn about the region’s heritage, from the days when Native Americans resided here through the Industrial Revolution and right up to today. Exhibits includes a 300-year-old dugout canoe and a 20-foot mural display featuring Native Americans engaged in everyday activities believed to be common to these early residents. Lighting and a 20-minute audio presentation further enhances this professional display.
