Education and Resources
The Society serves more than 20,000 persons annually through tours, workshops, lectures and other special events, and outreach events such as regional festivals, conferences and off-site collaborative projects.
Staff and volunteers regularly conduct tours of…
- the Society’s four historic houses
- the Museum of Erie County History
- downtown Erie
- the Erie Cemetery
- the Wayne Blockhouse
Tour content and delivery is adjusted according to audience learning levels (K – Adult), making them appropriate for almost every age.
These interactive programs bring local history to regional schools, community centers and organizations. Each program is designed to promote the study of local history by allowing students experiences not typical to the classroom.
Special events and programs such as the Ethnic Erie Project, Erie’s Heritage Festival and Victorian Holidays enable the Society to share Erie County’s story with the public.
