The Corry Area Historical Society (CAHS) recently used a generous grant from the Northwest Bancorp Charitable Foundation to install a dehumidifying system from Flick's and Daniels. This will positively impact the meeting room, office area, and Archive room. We also used funds from our successful Erie Gives campaign from the Erie & Corry Community Foundations, along with our own funds.  We greatly appreciate the support!

Our latest project involved improving the entrance way to the museum near the parking lot to continue enhancing the facade with the help of ECGRA, through a partnership with Erie Yesterday.

We thank the Corry Community Foundation, the Erie Community Foundation, ECGRA, Northwest Bancorp Charitable Foundation, sponsors, and our entire community for their generosity and support!

We would like to thank the community for your continued support! Your generosity is much appreciated. We also thank the non-profits that have backed us and have been there when we needed them.

We welcome new members and volunteers as we are making new plans for projects and events. Our Mission is to collect and preserve (or present to the Historical Museum Building) any article or articles pertaining to the history of the Corry Area, which encompasses the Corry Area School District. In addition, we would like to acknowledge the work of the volunteers who work on the archives and more on Thursdays and all of the Board members.  Many volunteers and visitors give their time, talent, and donations to support the museum. We have a great organization and wonderful community! There is no admission fee to enter the museum. We always appreciate a donation, although none is expected.  We rely on the generosity of the community and guests. 

Volunteers are usually available on most Thursdays from 10 am to 1 pm, while they work on our archives. They provide wonderful opportunities and experiences for our visitors, so please be considerate if you stop in.  If you would like to join our group of volunteers, please give us a call. We value your well-being and look forward to seeing you in the near future. We have started our 2023 membership drive; please consider joining as your support is important to us.
