    About    

 The Plymouth Historical Society Inc. established in 1986, is a non profit 501 c 3 organization, funded through donations. Our mission statement is the preservation, protection and projection, of our local history. The society does extensive genealogical and local historical research. We have established a reference library and museum, on the premises,  containing numerous historical artifacts and displays which reflect our local history. The Plymouth Historical Society research and museum facility is located at 115 Gaylord Ave, Plymouth, Pa.       We have safely reopened, our regular hours thru November will be 12 pm to 4 pm Thursday and Saturday. Other times and days by appointment. 

The PHS is also active in our community, participating in local events and in the preservation of historical sites such as the Avondale Mine Disaster Site in Plymouth Township.
