Welcome to the Mount Pleasant Area Historical Society

Located in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, the Mount Pleasant Area Historical Society formed in 1995 to promote the town’s heritage. We work to identify, interpret, and preserve Mount Pleasant’s history of our families, buildings, businesses, community groups, and town events.

The mission of the Mount Pleasant Area Historical Society is to:

  • Identify, interpret, preserve and develop the heritage and cultural resources of the community;
  • Expand the economic base and improve the quality of life of the residents and businesses by creating a network of facilities, events, educational attractions and visitor services through joint public and private investments;
  • Provide a public forum for discussion of preservation and heritage development issues and promote community involvement and volunteerism.
