The Mckean County Historical Society, located in Smethport, Pennsylvania, is a volunteer organization dedicated to preserving and sharing the stories of McKean County. One of the purposes of the Society is to promote and encourage the interest of our community in its history and to also share that history with visitors. This is achieved through the museum and public programs sponsored by the Society.
The Society is a nonprofit organization. The funding received from United Way is used to help us conserve artifacts so they can be used to provide displays and humanities programs to tell our story.
