Little Beaver Historical Society

Little Beaver Historical Society

The Historical Society manages two buildings: The Little Beaver Museum, a two story building built in 1882 housing artifacts and displays; and the Greersburg Academy, a two-story 1802 structure that is the oldest standing building in the county.  In 1882, it was converted to a railroad station and is the oldest standing rail station in the nation. Today, it houses artifacts, including 3,000 Native American ones.

We hope you enjoy our work.

Please support this 72-year tradition of trusted historical writing and the volunteers that sustain it with a donation to American Heritage.
