MISSION



The Evans City Historical Society had its beginning as a division of the Evans City Library Association in 1986. Within a few years, interest in the history of our community and scope of responsibilities of the Division warranted creation of an independent organization. The Historical Society was organized and incorporated on February 10, 1988. The society charter charges it to document, promote, preserve, and perpetuate the history of the area.

As a 501 (c) (3) public charity, our organization is eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions.

 

September General Meeting  -- Monday, September 24, 2018  7:30 PM
Community room of the Evans City library


Program:  Joy Hamilton will make a presentation of the period of time from 1754 to 1763 known as the French and Indian War.  Much was happening in this area as the colonies of British America were pitted against those of New France.  It began in a dispute over control of the confluence of the Allegheny and Monogahela rivers, the Fork of the Ohio and the site of Fort Duquesne.  Joy will present her program in period dress and bring with her many replicas of objects from that time in our history.

All are welcome to attend this presentation.
