MISSION



The Evans City Historical Society had its beginning as a division of the Evans City Library Association in 1986. Within a few years, interest in the history of our community and scope of responsibilities of the Division warranted creation of an independent organization. The Historical Society was organized and incorporated on February 10, 1988. The society charter charges it to document, promote, preserve, and perpetuate the history of the area.

As a 501 (c) (3) public charity, our organization is eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions.

 

November General Membership Meeting

            The November General Membership Meeting of the Evans City Area Historical Society will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, November 26, 2018 in the library community room of the Leone and John Irvine Community Center, 204 South Jackson Street, Evans City, PA

 

            Our guest speaker will be Steve Mihaly of Gibsonia. Recently retired from H. J. Heinz Co., Steve has been collecting presidential memorabilia for 50+ years. His presentation is called “Marketing the Presidency”. He will bring with him some of his collection (which encompasses between 20,000 and 25,000 political items). The presentation, which lasts about an hour, is a pictorial tour over the past 125 years that shows the often odd and unusual ways presidential candidates market themselves. His program is not a heavy political presentation, but one that is both light and whimsical.          

 

            Our programs are open to the public. You do not need to be a member of Evans City Area Historical Society to attend. You just need to be interested in local history.
