Founded in 1937, the Allegany County Historical Society is a 501c3, education-based non-profit organization with a mission to share the community’s rich history through museums, special collections and programming.

We currently own and operate three individual museums within mountain Maryland: The Gordon-Roberts House Museum, F. Brooke Whiting House and Union Grove One-Room Schoolhouse.
