Beaver Area Heritage Foundation
Founded in 1967 in Beaver, PA, 30 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, the Beaver Area Heritage Foundation has achieved local, statewide and national recognition for its dedication to the preservation and documentation of Beaver’s rich history. This year, it celebrates its 40th anniversary. Since its humble beginnings, the Heritage Foundation and its award-winning museum have grown to an organization of more than 450 members, and have become an important force in the community. We are an enthusiastic supporter of "Pittsburgh 250," the celebration of the Western Pennsylvania region's 250th anniversary in 2008.
