What's happening?

Welcome to the Jefferson County History Center! Through these pages and in our museum you'll find a wealth of knowledge about Jefferson County, PA. We try to refresh our exhibits once or twice a year, so keep coming back to see what's new. 

The JCHC works hard to make history fun for all ages and has even started programs to take history out of the museum. Come visit us and see all that we have to offer!
