Preserving History Since 1923

Properties

The Historical Society of Perry County serves as the steward of ten historic properties ranging in age from the 1788-1790 Clark’s Tavern in Duncannon to the 1884 Dromgold House and Farm in Shermansdale. We maintain two taverns, (one a museum), two covered bridges, two churches, two historic mansions, a school house, and a complete farmstead. We also operate and maintain a museum of Perry County History at Blue Ball Tavern within Little Buffalo State Park, as well as a large collection of artifacts and manuscripts which document and highlight Perry County’s rich history. If you have a love of Perry County history, or would like to learn more about our history, we cordially invite you to tour our properties, visit our museum, and help us preserve Perry County’s history.
