As a core mandate of our mission, South Mountain Heritage Society is committed to curating a rich collection representing our local culture and history. The collections at the heritage society museum include manuscripts, photographs, textiles, and artifacts spanning from the early-19th century through the present day. In addition to our archival collections, the heritage society maintains a vertical file catalog with genealogical and local history resources. All of these materials can be accessed in the exhibit room at the heritage society. We encourage you to contact us if you are interested in conducting research in our collections.
