Description

Zelienople Historical Society is dedicated to the preservation of local historical resources as well as the education of members and the public. A research library is maintained at Passavant House, with a large collection of primary resource materials as well as genealogical records of many early immigrant families. These materials are available to researchers seeking their own family records and those involved in scholarly pursuits.
