Erie County Historical Society’s three sites at 419 State St., 356 West 6th St. and Girard, promote Erie’s history. Supported by the collections, staff interpret our community’s history to diverse audiences.

With a core commitment to education, we are here to help you with your needs. Our Education Dept. schedules many special tours and presentations throughout the year. Educators use our resources to enrich and expand their lessons. Our exhibits are developed around core requirements for K-12.

Adults also appreciate what we have to offer year round. Residents and non-residents find the Watson-Curtze Mansion, the Erie History Center and Cashier’s House and the Battles Museums of Rural Life (in Girard) an enjoyable way to discover the region’s history.

Dynamic, varied, FUN programs present members of the community with opportunities to learn about Erie. Sometimes cultural phenomena like CLUE, Harry Potter or Downton Abbey enter the programming arena, providing engagement for those who participate!

Sharing the historic preservation ethic while combining it with economic development, links historical meaning with economic viability. Walking tours of the historic districts, downtown, maritime areas, and bicycle tours give members and non-members the opportunity to learn about Erie’s built environment and the past.

Images documenting our community, coupled with varied objects encourage viewers to become active participants in interpreting their own local history. With a Library & Archives (at the History Center) devoted to telling the whole story and an extensive collection of artifacts, Erie County Historical Society is also here to support your projects. Looking for content on individuals, families, businesses, homes, commercial structures? Working on an article, book or paper? Think of us first! We encourage on-site visits to give you the best service! Call for an appointment.

Erie County Historical Society is entering a phase of rapid and exciting change. You can play an important part. Please join us and help make your own Erie history!!
