CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield County Historical Society Board met April 17 to make plans for the opening of its Kerr House Museum and Alexander Research Center on Sunday, May 6.
The board encouraged the public to visit both adjacent buildings to tour the displays and to probe their family genealogies. Admission and tours are free of charge.
The board also emphasized that its research center contains many local genealogy sources that are not found online. Volunteers will be posted to help researchers.
