Description

Mission, goals and programs of the Jacobsburg Historical Society
The mission of the Jacobsburg Historical Society is to preserve the art and industry of making early American firearms, and the character of the individuals and community that created and sustained that enterprise.
The Society was founded in 1972 to preserve and interpret the historical Henry family estate and early industrial properties, the family's gun and iron making heritage and to help establish the Jacobsburg National Historic District.
The goals of the Society are to tell the historically significant story of the Henry family and the people, places, products and processes associated with its water-powered industries to a diverse audience using various interpretive mediums, such as museum and wayside exhibits, educational programming, publications, lectures and more.
The Society's program is currently presented to the public via visitor center exhibits, a historic house museum, living history encampments, school programs, a monthly community lecture series, a youth history day camp, a number of publications and early American gunsmithing courses. Later this year, the Boulton Heritage Walk and the Museum of the Pennsylvania Longrifle at the Henry Homestead will be completed projects that will add to the rich diversity of the Society's interpretive and educational program.
