purpose of the Paxtang Historical Society is to record, conduct research,
publish, and preserve the history of Paxtang using professional standards,
procedures, and methods. The Society hopes to educate and foster an
interest in the history of Paxtang and surrounding areas.
The Paxtang Historical Society was formed March 4, 2002, and is a 501(c)(3)
tax exempt nonprofit organization. All donations are tax deductible.
We deliberately have extremely low membership dues: $5 adult
membership, $50 life membership, and all children under 16 years of age for
free. We hold membership meetings in April and October, with history
presentations by guest speakers. We publish a newsletter and
historical journal twice a year, in February and July. We co-sponsor
events of the Borough of Paxtang, and hold annual membership picnics and
occasionally conduct field trips. All meetings and events are open to
our sponsored book "Paxtang Memories" and a list of our recent historical
journal articles are given on the PHS Current Activities web page.
