Due to Covid-19 our meetings have been put on hold.
Please check back to see when they will begin again.
The Historical & Preservation Society of the Greater Shickshinny Area, established in 2001, is a 501c3 organization, funded by donations. The mission of our organization is to preserve our heritage and history; to be appreciated by future generations and to help enrich the quality of life in the Greater Shickshinny Area and its surrounding communities.
Our home is the FLT building at 13-17 N Main Street Shickshinny, PA. Built in 1910, it was the former Odd Fellows building. We, along with the Shickshinny Business Association, purchased the building in 2006. It is called the FLT for the letters on the dental work on the front of the building.
Friendship ...The strongest bond of Fraternity that teaches goodwill and harmony
Love...The basis of all life's ambitions, service to others and their communities
Truth...The standard by which we serve people and the foundation of our society.
Our organization has welcomed many donated items from the public...We have hundreds of pictures, newspaper articles, uniforms of local interest, too many things to actually list.
Please come and visit us...The public is always welcome. Due to covid we are now requesting that a phone call be made to schedule a time and to make sure all preventions are in place so everyone can have a safe visit.
We are in the process of finishing the upstairs space...which will become the museum to hold our treasures as well as a space to hold meetings and larger gatherings.
And as for the FUTURE....
Plans are in place that the downstairs space will hold a children's library. We are so pleased that we can contribute to the Shickshinny Area by adding a resource that will benefit the children of today.
