The Society was established in 1976. The purpose of the society is to preserve memorabilia from East Petersburg’s past, and to make it available for the education of residents of the community. Community members are asked to help by donating journals, letters, relics, or any other materials, which enable the society to preserve the history of East Petersburg. Our monthly meetings are held the first Monday of the month (excluding January, February, June, July and September) at the East Petersburg Community Center 6051 Pine Street and begin at 7:30 PM, the public is invited to attend. In August we have a covered dish picnic at the community park in the pavilion. In December we have our Christmas Party. Details about the picnic or Christmas Party can be obtained by calling 898-2918.
In 1994, the society purchased the Daniel Wolf house, located at the corner of State and Lemon Streets. Rehabilitation of the property is funded by donations from individuals and by fundraisers.
The “gift shop” located in the Daniel Wolf House is open the first Saturday of each month from 9AM to 12 Noon. We have for sale wooden replicas of East Petersburg buildings, Dorothy Hollinger prints, crocks, stationary, afghans, plus other gift ideas.
