Dunbar Historical Society
The mission of the Society, formed in 1995, is to collect, preserve and educate school children, tour groups and locals on the rich history of the Dunbar area. A safe, visitor- friendly beehive coke oven built to Frick plans sits in our park across from the Society Education Center. The Society actively promotes the Sheepskin Trail located adjacent to the Society. The Pascal Annex has the largest piece of carved glass at 3000 pounds, made in Dunbar and donated several years ago by the Trump Family. The society is an active group of volunteers providing educational programs to Fayette County and visitors from to date over 35 states and 14 countries since the center was purchased in 2006. The society is a vital and active group.
Programs and Services
Safe, beehive coke oven where visitors can get inside; Pascal Annex art gallery; genealogy research; education programs for all age groups; and two floors of museum quality artifacts and over 200 albums of photos, stories & ephemera pertaining to Dunbar and other small Dunbar Township communities. Due to the Covid issues fundraising has been difficult, the funds will be for general maintenance, utilities and brochures along with prepackaged food and drink to sell since there are no places in town for visitors and bikers to purchase refreshments. Any funding would be appreciated. Many thanks!
