Serves to educate, preserve, and interpret rich history of Wyalusing.
The Wyalusing Valley Museum covers the history of the same geographic area as the Wyalusing Area School District, including Albany, Overton, Terry, Wilmot, Tuscarora, Wyalusing, Herrick, and Stevens Townships in Bradford County and the Laceyville area of Wyoming County.
The Wyalusing Valley Museum Association’s mission is to educate, preserve and interpret the rich history and culture of the Wyalusing Valley and contiguous area of the southeastern corner of Bradford County.
The Wyalusing Valley Museum Association was started in 1976 headed by William Keeler and James Eaton and many other Wyalusing residents as a tribute to the bicentennial of our nation. The displays were located in the Wyalusing Borough Hall and lasted one year.
In late 1979 a group of citizens concerned about how to preserve the history of Wyalusing got together to reform the Wyalusing Museum and set up a committee and by 1980 the Wyalusing Valley Museum officially opened in the basement of the Wyalusing Public Library.
Today the museum has benefited from a generous gift from Kay Welles Homer of leasing the Bixby house and barns on the Welles estate in East Wyalusing.
