The Allegheny-Kiski Valley Historical Society is a non-profit, permanent institution whose primary mission is interpreting, preserving, and celebrating our cultural, industrial, and ethnic heritage of the Allegheny and Kiskiminetas river valleys in southwestern Pennsylvania, a region embracing the surrounding areas from Harmar Township north to Freeport, and east to Apollo.

The Society is committed to accomplishing this mission through the following objectives:

    1. Acquiring, preserving, and professionally exhibiting historically relevant material that illustrates the history of the region;

    2. Developing and facilitating cooperative partnerships among organizations with a similar mission;

    3. Providing educational and outreach opportunities for the public; and

    4. Serving as a catalyst for the private and public preservation, rehabilitation and/or adaptive re-use of historic sites.
