Redbank Valley Historical Society

 

Redbank Renaissance, Inc. is now working with the Redbank Valley Historical Society. The Society welcomes new members and contributors to help preserve area history.

One goal is to publish a book updating and documenting the history of the Redbank Valley since the 1887 A.J. Davis History of Clarion County and an Armstrong County History of the same era.

The Society presents programs of historical interest usually twice each year in the Spring and Fall. Past programs have included these topics: Fishbasket Native American Villages, Ribbons of Steel – The Impact of the Allegheny Valley Rail Road, a Story to Tell: A Photographic Retrospective of the Redbank Valley and Scripture Rocks of Brookville.

The next program will be on May 1st, 2014 at 7 PM at the New Bethlehem Presbyterian Church and will focus on this area’s involvement in the Civil War including a presentation by Lincoln re-enactor Jim McCullough and information about Congressional Medal of Honor winner Jeremiah Brown.

Members enjoy outings to sites of interest and meet regularly on the first Tuesday of each month at 10 AM at the New Bethlehem Presbyterian Church.

The Redbank Valley Historical Society's 2014 Inaugural Calendar is now available with then and now photos, lots of historic information and locally and nationally historic dates on each month of the calendar. They make great gifts for those who love the area and its history. Proceeds benefit the Historic Society’s efforts to publish a book on Redbank Valley history. For more information see Historical Society Calendar.
