The Leechburg Museum is the place to go if you’re into history. With countless artifacts of Leechburg’s past, it is a must SEE when visiting Leechburg.
There are two floors to explore that are packed with things to see. Numerous copies of Leechburg’s former paper, The Leechburg Advance are housed within. You can also find a copy of every yearbook published by the high school back in the 1920s. If you or someone you know graduated from the area, you can look up their photos from their high school days.
A trip to the Leechburg Museum
I recently visited the Leechburg Museum and was blown away by the depth and breadth of its exhibits. The museum is housed in a beautiful, historic building that has been lovingly restored to its former glory. Visitors can explore a fascinating collection of artifacts and displays that tell the story of Leechburg and the surrounding area.
One of the museum’s highlights is the collection of vintage photographs, which offer a glimpse into daily life in Leechburg over the past century. There are also exhibits dedicated to the town’s history as a center of industry, with displays of local factories and the people who worked in them.
For those interested in military history, the museum has a collection of artifacts and memorabilia from the various wars in which local residents have served. There are also displays on the town’s role in the Underground Railroad and on the Native American tribes that once lived in the area.
Overall, I highly recommend visiting the Leechburg Museum for anyone interested in local history. The exhibits are well-curated and informative, and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It’s a great way to learn more about this fascinating corner of Pennsylvania.
The Museum is open Wednesdays and Saturdays, Noon to 3PM. It is closed in January and February. Located at 118 First Street.
