History Center Opening
Governor Wolf has declared Forest County green as of May 29, 2020. We at the Forest county History
Center plan to re-open on Friday June 12. Our hours for this year are Monday through Saturday noon –
four o’clock except on Tuesday when we will once again offer our lecture series, Tuesday Talks at the
Museum. On Tuesdays we are open noon to eight o’clock. Our prices will remain the same this year
being: members free as always, Adults – $5.00, Students 12 and over – $3.00 and children under 12 free
with an accompanying adult.
We want everyone to feel safe at our museum. That includes the docents, other
volunteers, visitors and the Board, so we have implemented some changes to our
We are an exhibit-based organization, not a performance-based organization. So, this along with the
CDC and the Pa Department of Health guidelines, and recommendations from the American Association
for State and Local History here are some policies we have implemented:
Docents will wear a mask when they greet people and during tours.
We will only take one group of visitors at a time. If someone is already on tour, visitors can wait on the
porch until that tour is finished.
All visitors must wear a mask for the safety of others.
We will have hand sanitizers in most rooms.
We will have alcohol wipes placed by any computers, etc. that people may touch.
We have implemented a Cleanliness policy so keep everyone safe at the museum.
We will be offering our lecture series again on Tuesday evenings at 7:00. We will appropriately place
our chairs for social distancing and if by chance we run out of room, the doors will close and no more
people will be admitted that evening.
We, the FCHS Board will continue to observe, analyze, and adapt our policies to make sure everyone is
safe during this historic time.
