On February 7, 1925, six prominent citizens of Cambria County "associated themselves together for the purpose of organizing the Cambria County Historical Society." Since that time, the staff, volunteers, and members of the Society have remained committed to the organization's mission.

"To preserve and promote the history of Cambria County through its museum collections, library, and archives."


"Beginning at the Conemaugh River, at the southeast corner of Indiana County, thence by a straight line to the Canoe Place on the West Branch of the Susquehanna; thence easterly along the line of Clearfield County to the southwesterly Corner of Centre County, on the heads of Moshannon Creek; thence southerly along the Allegheny mountain to Somerset and Bedford County lines; thence along the lines of Somerset and Bedford Counties about seventeen miles until a due West course from thence will strike the main branch of Paint Creek; thence down said Creek, the different courses thereof till it empties into Stoney Creek; thence down Stoney Creek the different courses to the mouth of Mill Creek, thence a due west line till it intersects the lines of Somerset and Westmoreland Counties; then northerly along the line to the place of beginning; be and the same is hereby erected into a separate county, to be henceforth called Cambria County."
