The Boalsburg Heritage Museum (BHM) is committed to education and the community with the mission of preserving historical items significant to Boalsburg and Harris Township, and, thereby, promoting interest in the village through historical education. Learning to appreciate our past provides a vital link with the families and memories that have made our community. Since 1984, volunteers at the BHM have worked tirelessly to acquire and preserve items of historical importance to Harris Township and Centre County. We are pleased to share with visitors the history of beautiful Central Pennsylvania and particularly the village of Boalsburg that reflects an earlier simpler life. To that end, the home is open to the public regularly from April through early December. Visitors can view historical artifacts and more, with free admission to the Boalsburg Heritage Museum any Saturday between 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. or by appointment.
A climate-controlled archive, which was once a woodshed, is used for storage of historical documents that are sensitive to temperature extremes, as well as humidity, dust, and other pollutants. Important items, such as books, paperwork, photographs, and other historical treasures can be kept safe and preserved for future generations.
