The purpose of the Jefferson Township Historical Society (“Society”) shall be to bring together those people interested in history, and especially in the history of Jefferson Township and surrounding areas. Understanding the history of our community is basic to our democratic way of life, gives us a better understanding of our state and nation, and promotes a better appreciation of our American heritage.

The Jefferson Township Historical Society (“JTHS”) is a non-profit organization with tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revue Code and is located in the 46th District.

General Information

“Making History by Preserving History – since 1990”

“Making History by Preserving History” has been what our Historian Debbie Vraninin has been doing since we have not been able to have in-person meetings due to the pandemic. Enclosed you will find a list of 67 albums, many with pictures, that have been put together to preserve our local history. These albums are in the White Church. Dave Choman 724 947 2116 has agreed to open the White Church by appointment should you want to look at any of these albums. Do you have family history that you would like to add to our collection?

Museum We have a member who is offering to donate several military uniforms that will be placed in our museum. Do you have anything that you would like to donate to our museum. You are welcomed to make an appointment for viewing our museum by calling Dave Choman.

Covering the Blue Covering the Blue has continued to be very active during this time that we could not have meetings by crocheting lap blankets for wounded officers. As of this time, they have sent out 1,244 lap blankets for wounded officers throughout the entire country.
