Our county holds a treasure trove of stories and artifacts that are worth preserving and sharing.

The Society is ready to accept gifts of historical value related to Allegany County and it’s People.  

Its mission is to foster an interest in and knowledge of the history of Allegany County through the collection, preservation and interpretation of objects and archives of local significance.

The Research Center will accept collections, including paperbound records, family papers, photographic collections and computer prepared records.  The Museum will accept an almost unlimited collection of items that historically represent our rich culture.

It matters not, a little or a lot......Everything we can record and hold for future generations will enrich their lives in the future!
