Housed in a former elementary school building in rural Westmoreland County, the Victorian Vandergrift Museum offers a wealth of information from old photographs, memorabilia and books, to maps, microfiche and documents about the town of Vandergrift and its immediate area.
Founded in the 1890s, Vandergrift was created as the quintessential company town when the Apollo Iron & Steel Company decided that providing workers with good housing and a good urban environment would make them more loyal and productive. To that end, they hired the nation's preeminent landscape architectural firm, Olmsted, Olmsted and Eliot, to design what became Vandergrift.
Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
