About Us

Mission Statement

As the official historical society of Beaver County located in the Vicary Mansion (Freedom, PA), we are passionate about recognizing historical sites, disseminating research findings and publications, offering interactive programs, providing referrals, and preserving archives and artifacts for the general public.

Board of Trustees


Through our many outreach programs, such as the designation of historical sites, educational programs, Windows Through History©, Western Pennsylvania Quilt Documentation Project, publications, archives, as well as the renovation of the Vicary Mansion, we are growing in many different directions. Without the support of the Beaver County Commissioners, Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC), individuals, organizations and businesses, we would be unable to continue the promotion of the history of Beaver County. We thank those of you who retain their membership as well as all of the volunteers that keep the Mansion alive through programs and restoration projects.

We are proud members of Heinz History Center Affiliates Program, AASLH (American Association for State and Local History), ALHFAM (Association for Living History, Farm and Agricultural Museums), and the Beaver County Tourist Promotion Agency.
